GEN. JOHN MARSHALL BROWN, A.M. 

By Henry S. Burrage, D.D. 

The death of Gen. John Marshall Brown at his summer residence 
at Falmouth Foreside, near Portland, Maine, July 20, 1907, closed 
a career of much more than ordinary interest. He was a son of 
John Bundy and Ann Matilda (Greely) Brown, and was born in 
Portland, December 14, 1838. His father, a son of Titus Olcott. and 
Susannah (Bundy) Brown, was one of the foremost business men of 
Portland, and the head of the Portland Sugar Company. The father 
of Titus Olcott Brown was a native of Stonin^ton, Conn. Seekino* 
a new home, he made his way into New Hampshire, and became 
one of the pioneer settlers of Lancaster. The mother of Titus Ol- 
cott Brown was Abigail Olcott, whose father, Thomas Olcott, was 
one of the first settlers of Hartford, Conn. Through his mother, 
Gen. Brown was descended from Pilgrim ancestors in three lines, 
namely, from William Brewst- 'Chief of the Pilgrims," from 
George Soule, a signer of the Compact in the cabin of the May- 
flower, and one of a commission appointed to revise the laws of the 
colony, and from John Alden, a magistrate of Plymouth Colony 
for more than half a century. 

Gen. Brown received his early education in the Portland Academy, 
Portland, Gould's Academy, Bethel, and Phillips Academy, An- 
dover, Mass. At Andover he was the orator of his class. Entering 
Bowdoin College in 1856, he won the declamation prizes in his 
Sophomore and Junior years. He received at Bowdoin also the 
appointment of class orator. The ties that bound him to the college, 
and to his classmates beloved, were sundered only by death. 

After his graduation, Gen. Brown entered upon the study of law 
in the office of John Rand, an eminent Portland lawyer. For the 
profession of law he seemed to have many qualifications, but national 
affairs were pressing for consideration, and more and more occupied 
his attention. Civil War followed, and in the progress of the war 
it became clearly evident that very large sacrifices must be made 
if the Union was to be preserved. The call of his country came 
to Gen. Brown as it came to many of his classmates and dear- 
est friends, and his response was ready. Deeply interested in the 
history of his native State, he had left his home on the morning of 
vol. lxii. 2 



12 John Marshall Brown. [Jan. 

August 29, 1862, in order to attend the Maine Historical Society's 
celebration in honor of the landing of the Popham colonists at the 
mouth of the Kennebec, August 29, 1607. On reaching Bruns- 
wick, he received notice of his appointment as First Lieutenant and 
Adjutant of the 20th Maine Infantry. This regiment, of which 
Adelbert Ames was Colonel and Prof. Joshua L. Chamberlain of 
Bowdoin College was Lieut. Colonel, was about to leave the State 
for the seat of war. Glen. Brown proceeded no farther, but at once 
returned to Portland, and September 2d, with his regiment, sailed 
from Boston to Washington on the steamer Merrimac, which served 
as a transport also for the 36th Massachusetts. 

On reaching Washington, the 20th Maine was assigned to the 
5th Corps, and Gen. Brown saw his first great battle a few days 
after at Antietam. In the destructive battle of Fredericksburg, 
also, he was engaged with his regiment. At the battle of Chan- 
cellorsville he served as Acting Assistant Adjutant General on the 
staff of Gen. Ay res, and received honorable mention for his part in 
that added grapple with the Army of Northern Virginia. June 23, 
1863, he received from President Lincoln an appointment as As- 
sistant Adjutant General, U. S. V., and was assigned to duty on 
the staff of Gen. Ames, who had received promotion. At the battle 
of Gettysburg, Gen. Brown performed valuable service during the 
three days fight on that memorable field, and received honorable 
mention for the same. 

After the battle of Gettysburg, Gen. Ames, with his command, 
was ordered to South Carolina, and Gen. Brown saw service in 
the siege of Fort Wagner, and in the movement on John's Island. 
Later he saw service in Florida. 

His army experience had now extended over a period of a year 
and a half, and his fitness for added responsibilities was recognized 
in army circles, and through these by the Governor of Maine, who, 
March 26, 1864, appointed him Lieut. Colonel of the 32d Maine 
Infantry. On receiving information of this appointment, Gen. 
Brown returned to Maine. When he reached Portland, he found 
that a portion of the 3 2d had already left for the seat of war. 
Gen. Brown soon followed with the remaining four companies, and 
joined the army in Virginia under Grant at the North Anna river, 
the regiment having been assigned to the 9th Corps. As Colonel 
Wentworth of the 32d had been temporarily ..disabled, Gen. Brown 
was in command of the regiment at Totopotomoy, Cold Harbor, 
and in the advances on Petersburg, where June 19, 1864, he was 
severely wounded. Learning from his physicians that on account 
of his wounds he would not be able for a long time to return to his 
regiment, Gen. Brown resigned, and September 28, 1864, he was 
mustered out of the service " on account of physical disability from 
wounds received in action." He had performed honorable service, and 
this was recognized in the three brevets he received, that of Colonel 



1908.] John Marshall Brown, 13 

"for distinguished gallantry in the battle of Gettsyburg, Pa.," also 
that of Colonel " for gallant and meritorious services in the battles 
before Petersburg, Va."; and that of Brigadier General "for gal- 
lant and meritorious services during the war." 

After his recovery from his wounds, Gen. Brown devoted himself 
to business interests, entering the firm of J. B. Brown and Sons, 
then managers of the Portland Sugar Company. He also identified 
himself with public interests, especially those of his native city. In 
1865, he was elected a member of the Common Council of the city 
of Portland, and also a member of the School Committee. He 
was one of the founders and the first president of the Portland Army 
and Navy Union. Later he was president of the Soldiers and 
Sailors Monument Association, and he delivered the address at the 
dedication of the monument erected in honor of the soldiers and 
sailors from Portland, who served in the Civil War. He was one 
of the charter members of the Maine Commandery of the Military 
Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, and for some time 
served as its Recorder, and later as its Commander. For five years 
he was a member of the Council of the Commandery-in-Chief of 
that Order. He identified himself prominently with the agricultural 
interests of the State. For many years he was a trustee, and in 
1-878 he was president, of the Maine Agricultural Society. The 
citizen soldiery of Maine had in him an earnest supporter. He 
served as Colonel of the 1st regiment, and later as Brigadier Gen- 
eral. He performed efficient service on the staff of Governor 
Chamberlain, and also as a member of a commission for revising 
the military code of the State. In 1899, he represented the towns 
of Falmouth and Cumberland in the Legislature of Maine. 

But with all his varied duties and interests, he found time for the 
exercise of his scholarly tastes. With the Maine Historical Society 
he was closely identified. For many years he was a member of its 
Standing Committee. Early in life he began a collection of books 
and manuscripts pertaining to the history of his native State, and 
this work was carried on with painstaking enthusiasm to the end of 
life. But especially were his scholarly interests maintained in con- 
nection with his alma mater. For many years he served as president 
of its Board of Overseers, and later he was made a member of its 
Board of Trustees. Bowdoin College in all his manhood years had 
his strong, loyal, loving support. 

His last public service, and that which afforded him especial 
gratification, was as a member of the Board of Managers of the 
National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. He was the 
Second Vice President of the Board, and Local Manager of the East- 
ern Branch at Togus, Maine. His interest in the soldiers of the 
Civil War, commenced in the camp, on the march and amid the shock 
of arms on great battles-fields, increased year by year, and it was 
a matter of the highest satisfaction to him that in the closing period 



14 John Marshall Brown, [Jan. 

of his life he was able to have an important part in ministering to 
the comfort and well-being of his comrades who had performed 
faithful service in the battle years 1861-1865, and needed a help- 
ing hand in their old age. His work for the Home was continued 
with unabated solicitude and wholeheartedness to the very close of 
life. Indeed, he had arranged to be at Togus on the very day of his 
death. The high esteem in which Gen. Brown was held by the old 
soldiers is well illustrated from the fact that of their own motion 
they had planned to line up on the avenue leading to the station at 
Togus in order that as he passed through these lines on his arrival 
at the Branch, after a long absence occasioned by sickness, they 
might give him a soldier's welcome. 

In all his life-work Gen. Brown was animated by a deep religious 
spirit. He was a devout member of the Protestant Episcopal 
church, and was prominent in its councils, State and National. His 
religious life deepened with his advancing years, and there was 
nothing that had for its purpose the moral and spiritual welfare of 
men that did not find in him a sympathetic friend and well-wisher. 
The beautiful stone chapel, St. Mary's, which he erected at Fal- 
mouth Foreside, was an expression of his religious feeling as well 
as of his undying remembrance of a beloved daughter. 

In his family and among his friends Gen. Brown was always a 
charming personality. His classmate at Bowdoin, the Hon. Joseph 
W. Symonds of Portland, in a beautiful tribute to one he had known 
so long and so intimately, has well said of Gen. Brown : 

" In the domestic circle there was no delight like that of his presence. 
Friends without number lavished their admiration and love upon him, and 
he grappled them to himself with hooks of steel. Never was a friendship 
lightly broken ; it was rather like burnished armor on which rust does not 
gather by lapse of time. Long absent friends were always glad to recall 
him. He was never forgotten." 

Maj. General Joshua L. Chamberlain, who was associated with 
Gen. Brown in very close relations, bears this testimony to the 
character of his long-time friend and companion : 

" His personal character was that of a high-minded man, a chivalrous 
gentleman, a loyal friend, a knight of honor. While perhaps the stronger 
traits of manliness were more apparent in his ordinary bearing and man- 
ner, this was partly from a delicacy of nature which made him one of the 
most modest of men. Those who shared his deeper moods found in him 
a gentleness and tenderness which endeared him in a degree not common." 

When such a man is taken from any community the finer feelings 
are touched, and men say with one of old, " How is the strong staff 
broken and the beautiful rod." The funeral services were held in 
St. Luke's cathedral in Portland, July 23d. There was a large 
attendance, and among those present were men who had been asso- 
ciated with Gen. Brown for many years in public and private life. 
The Eastern Branch of the National Home was represented by its 



1908.] John Farnham and his Descendants, 15 

officers, company commanders, a bugler and eight sergeants who 
acted as pall-bearers. The committal was in the crypt of St. Mary's 
chapel. 

Gen. Brown married, December 18, 1866, in Washington, D.C., 
Miss Alida Catherine Carroll, a daughter of William Thomas Car- 
roll, clerk of the Supreme Court in Washington, and of Sally 
Sprigg, daughter of Samuel Sprigg, Governor of Maryland, and 
Violetta Lansdale. Five children were born to them : Sally Car- 
roll, Alida Greely, Mary Brewster, Carroll, and Violetta Lansdale. 
Alida died in Montreux, Switzerland, in 1889. 

Gen. Brown was a member of the New England Historic Gen- 
ealogical Society, elected in 1868, and a corresponding member 
of the Historical societies of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New 
York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

and his name appears the 33d on the list. On June 5, 1650, he was one 
of the seven pillars of the Second Church of Boston. Subsequently he 
joined the Baptist church of Boston, which step seems to have been con- 
sidered disorderly, and his conduct so heretical in the eyes of his brethren 
that he was subsequently sentenced to be banished. (See Register, Vol. 
5, p. 399.) He married Elizabeth .

there, in 1644. In 1681 he was the miller. His will, dated 1656, notes 
his mill, bakehouse and lands ; and the estate inventoried at £985. His 
name appears frequently in the divisions of land, but he did not have much 
to do with public affairs. He married Grace .

ALFRED POORE. 

By Sidney Perlet, LL.B. 

The passing of Alfred Poore marks the line between the old and 
new school of genealogists, — between the class to which his contem- 
poraries, John Farmer, Joshua Coffin and James Savage belonged, 
and the large number of later and more scientific investigators. 
Alfred Poore — the final " e " he added to his surname about twenty- 
five years ago — was of the earlier days, but he had the habit and 
instinct of the later methods. He was like those of the old days in 
some ways, — in simplicity of life, gentleness, interestedness, up- 
rightness, — but more thorough, careful and systematic in research. 
The only one of his contemporaries that he was much like was the 
late. Dr. Henry Wheatland. He had Doctor Wheatland's love for 
nature and the natural sciences, a taste for the beautiful in all its 
forms, leading a simple, upright life, and being passionately fond 
of history and genealogy. They were alike in one thing more than 
all else, in that they were collectors to an extent and in a variety 
unsurpassed. Everything that they could get into their possession 
they saved, though they never systematically arranged their collec- 
tions. No matter what the things were — advertisements, pro- 
grammes, business cards, pictures, books, newspapers, clippings, 
etc. — sometimes soiled, worn out, deficient, or utterly worthless. 
And this practice was not confined to lines in which they were in- 
terested. They seemed endued with that almost unknown truth 
that the way to collect items of history is to do it when it can be 
obtained at first hand, — at the time and from the parties making it. 
Neither of these men could bear to see anything lost that was or 
might become useful. Doctor Wheatland was accustomed to write 
with pieces of lead pencils only an inch or two in length, while 
among the literary remains of Mr. Poore was found a considerable 
number of pencil stubs so short that it was difficult to grasp any 
one of them with thumb and finger. Both of them used scraps of 
paper for their memoranda — backs of advertisements, programmes, 
menues, old envelopes, etc. And yet these men were not penuri- 
ous, neither was it the habit of New England thrift — it was rather 
the economy of the perfect man, the principle which allows no 
waste. 

Alfred Poore was born in West Haverhill, Mass., February 27, 
1818. His father, Jesse Poor, was a farmer and cordwainer, and 
a man of quiet nature, light complexion, blue eyes, and medium 
stature. Alfred was like him in these respects. Alfred's mother 
was Sally Bailey of the same neighborhood. The father died July 
19, 1847, and she survived him upwards of thirty years. Alfred's 
parents must have been possessed of strong principles and character, 
interested in the religious training and secular and religious instruc- 



52 Alfred Poore. [Jan. 

tion of their children, for his entire life manifested his deep, un- 
swerving character. Almost self educated, broad in his interests, 
liberal in his views, and normal in his attitude towards all things, he 
was a christian — pure, temperate, simple, unostentatious, modest, 
and a benefactor in many ways and to more people than will ever 
be known because of his quiet way of helping others. His bene- 
factions were neither large nor conspicuous. He had little money, 
but his heart was full of sympathy, his manner genial, whole hearted, 
honest. Anything that he had was at the use of every one. His 
large collection of historical and genealogical material, gathered 
by him at great expense of time and labor, was ever ready for 
others to consult and copy. 

He was taught the trade of a cordwainer when quite young ; but 
his early life was no different from that of the ordinary farmer's boy. 
He did the chores and work which falls to the country lad, about 
the house, barn, field, pasture and wood ; attending the district 
school when it was in session, and going religiously to church and 
Sunday school. He had the advantages of the school of his district 
(number nine) during his teens for about ten weeks each winter. 
In the winter of 1837-8, he attended Atkinson Academy, when John 
Kelly was preceptor. He received at the academy an increased 
desire for knowledge ; and, at the age of twenty-two, in February, 
1840, he entered the "Bradford Teachers' Seminary," which Ben- 
jamin Greenleaf, the distinguished mathematician, teacher and author, 
had opened December 4, 1839. Mr. Greenleaf was a native of 
Alfred's school district, and formerly principal of Bradford Academy. 
At this "teachers' seminary," Alfred continued until July 20, 1841, 
boarding with Mr. Greenleaf. He studied various branches of 
learning, and became specially interested in the natural sciences. 
While he was attending Mr. Greenleaf 's "teachers' seminary," he 
received the following certificate of his efficiency as a teacher : — 

Haverhill, Sept 21st, 1840. 
This may certify that I have satisfactory evidence of the good moral 
character of Mr. Alfred Poor, and that upon examination I find him duly 
qualified for the office of teacher in our common English schools. 

James R. Cushing, Com. Ex. 

In the winter of 1843-4 he began the study of medicine and sur- 
gery under the tuition of Dr. George Cogswell, of Bradford, who 
then had several students under his instruction for the medical 
profession, and attended a course of lectures in the medical depart- 
ment of Dartmouth College, in 1845. While at Hanover, he was 
favored with the special attention given to botany by Professor 
Phelps, who conducted his classes in the field as well as lecture 
room. September 1, 1846, Doctor Cogswell gave him the follow- 
ing certificate : — 

This may certify that Mr. Alfred Poor has been engaged in the study 
of medicine and surgery under my tuition for the last two and a half years,

and during the time has attended one full course of medical lectures at 
Dartmouth College. Geo. Cogswell, M.D. 

Sept. '1, 1846, Bradford. 

Mr. Poor thus became an accredited physician ; and it is said, 
though he would never admit its truth, that he hung out a pro- 
fessional shingle, painted with the legend: "A. Poor, Doctor." 
The sign proved unattractive to those in need of a physician, proba- 
bly, and he never practised his profession. 

During the intervals between his pursuits after knowledge, Mr. 
Poore remained at home, assisting upon the farm, until January, 
1847, when he became a clerk for Peter Parker, who then and 
for nearly half a century after conducted a country store near the 
Congregational meeting-house in the East parish of Bradford, now 
the town of Groveland. Alfred went to the store with the inten- 
tion of working there temporarily, but he remained ten years, board- 
ing in the family of Dea. Ira Hopkinson. 

In 1846, Mr. Poore became interested in his ancestry, and com- 
menced inquiries to learn both paternal and maternal lines. Next 
came a desire to obtain knowledge of all the descendants of the immi- 
grant ancestors of both of his parents. While living in Groveland 
he collected materials for a history of the town, including the gene- 
alogies of the families who resided there since the early settlement. 
After leaving Groveland (in 1857), he continued his researches 
into the history and genealogy of the families in Andover, Boxford, 
Bradford, Newbury and the towns adjoining. 

He became a member of the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society in 1851, and a life member in 1873. In the more than 
half a century of his membership, he rarely or never failed to be 
present at the stated monthly meetings of the society until his final 
sickness ; and was at the time of his decease the oldest living mem- 
ber in point of time of admission to the society. He was elected a 
corresponding member of the Maine Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, February 7, 1876 ; and was a charter member of the Anti- 
quarian and Historical Society of Old Newbury, which was formed 
September 5, 1877. 

January 31, 1865, he went to Salem, intending to spend a 
few weeks in the examination of the county records, and continued 
there as long as he lived, a period of more than forty-two years. 
In November of that year (1865), he secured a lodging room in a 
chamber of the shed on the home premises of his friend, the late dis- 
tinguished numismatist and genealogist, Matthew Adams Stickney, 
at number 117 Boston street, in Salem. He continued to live there 
until April 20, 1891, when his friends persuaded him to take ad- 
vantage of the hospitality of the Bertram Home for Aged Men in 
Salem. There he spent his last years, and died. 

In a letter to a gentleman in Kansas, dated June 20, 1871, Mr. 
Poore wrote as follows : " I have spent more than a thousand dol- 



54 Alfred Poore. [Jan. 

lars on the Bailey family, of which I shall not get back a cent,- — 
therefore I am poor indeed. I was born in the year 1818, and am 
not worth, all told, more than about a thousand dollars. I have 
genealogy so deeply seated on the brain that there is no prospect of 
my being worth much more. Came to Salem six years ago last 
January to spend a few weeks, and have not been able to leave but 
for a few days at a time. At those times I am always searching 
town records and questioning old folks. Sometimes I get a job to 
hunt up a family for small pay so as to buy. my bread and cheese, 
etc., to live ; and the rest of the time am at work upon the various 
families to which I belong. ... In fact, I have spent all on 
genealogy since I started, twenty-five years ago, about this time of 
the year." 

While living by himself, Mr. Poore frequently prepared his food 
away from his room, eating his frugal meal of bread or rice and 
milk, with sometimes a piece of pie, at Billy Nourse's narrow board 
in the rear dark corner of his fruit store, which stood on Washing- 
ton street, opposite the city hall. Doctor Poore, as he was famil 
iarly called, was always welcome there, and allowed to make a cup of 
tea over the old cook stove in the other corner of the rear of the shop. 
Billy and the doctor became cronies in some respects as year after 
year they sipped their tea, and ate their simple repast together in the 
little dark corner under the stairway. Mr. Poore was not mean, 
nor simply saving in so living, but it was the quiet, simple way he 
had grown to like, and he wished for nothing more elaborate. He 
often carried his lunch to the court house in a paper bag, and ate it 
as he read and abstracted and copied the old records. 

In 1866 he became a member of the Essex Institute, and a few 
years later a life member. He was a constant attendant at all its 
meetings for forty years, and was greatly interested in every phase 
of its work. But his investigations were not made there to any great 
extent ; the original records at the court house were more attractive 
and needful for his purpose. He made much research in other 
places, having a number of times purchased and used three-months' 
season tickets between Salem and Boston while examining the rec- 
ords and papers in the state archives, court house, city hall and 
other places in and around Boston. 

He conducted novel researches in Massachusetts, Vermont, New 
Hampshire and Maine. From town to town he walked or was 
driven by acquaintances he had made, being gone on these trips 
several months at a time. His purpose was to gather genealogical 
and historical material concerning those families who had gone out 
from Essex county and settled in the newer portions of New Eng- 
land. He examined and copied from town and church records, 
gravestones, family bibles and private memoranda, and made quite 
thorough inquest into family traditions and unwritten family history 
and genealogy and immigrations. From the aged people he gleaned 
many items which would otherwise have been forever unknown.

Though the notes of his visitations are written in pencil on brown 
paper, they are in good condition, having been bound into a num- 
ber of volumes. The value of these books will increase as the 
years pass. 

Another work of great value, which is more apparent now than 
at the time it was done, was the collecting and printing in book 
form of what he called f The Historical and Genealogical Re- 
searches and Recorder of Passing Events of Merrimack Valley. 
Being a Repository of Antiquities relating to the History, Bio- 
graphy, Genealogy, Heraldry, Archaeology, etc., of the Valley." 
The first number was published by him, at Haverhill, in April, 1857. 
It is folio in size, and contains seventy-six pages, being illustrated 
with many wood cuts, portraits, homesteads, etc. A notice of the 
first number appeared in the Register, volume xi, page 363, and 
it said : "A student of American History who shall, in a future 
century, meet with a copy of this publication, will look upon it 
with surprise. If it is now regarded as a remarkable publication, 
it will doubtless be far more so regarded in future ages. The in- 
habitants of Merrimack Valley are fortunate in having such a 
chronicler as Mr. Poor; for if they encourage him to go on, their 
names, and the names of their children, will be handed down to 
posterity. We fear, however, he may have taken rather too wide 
a range, and that he will not find sufficient encouragement to con- 
tinue his work, which is finely got up, and at great expense." Only 
two numbers were issued, the financial returns being but a small 
fraction of the amount of the cost of publishing. The enterprise 
antedated all similar publications except the Register. 

In 1880, at Salem, Mr. Poore published his quarto volume of 
three hundred and thirty-two pages, entitled :f A Memoir and 
Genealogy of John Poore." This work included ten generations, 
from 1615 to 1880, with "the posterity of numerous daughters 
whereby pedigrees of many other families, extending through from 
three to six or more generations, are given." The work is neatly 
gotten up, and has a number of illustrations. It is a production of 
great thoroughness and accuracy. Mr. Poore had far advanced the 
preparation of the genealogies of the descendants of the other Poore 
immigrants, which would probably have been published ere this 
time had he been younger and stronger. He founded the Poore 
Family Association in 1881, and was its secretary until his death. 
He published an interesting and valuable report of each meeting, in 
pamphlet form. 

Mr. Poore never married ; and his long life of nearly four score 
and ten years may be attributed to the simplicity of his life, and 
freedom from worry and things injurious. He never used intoxi- 
cating liquors, and only the simplest drink and food. He was 
tolerant in religion, but trinitarian in his own belief, having become 
a member of the church of his childhood, the West Congregational 



56 Wiard Family Bible Records. [Jan. 

Church in Haverhill, January 7, 1838, and a member of the 
society connected with that church, May 27, 1839. He continued 
his relation with that church as long as he lived, nearly seventy 
years in all. He was constant in his attendance at the Tabernacle 
Church in Salem, and a member of the Sunday school. He became 
a life member of the Massachusetts Home Missionary Society in 
1875, and of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign 
Missions, May 16, 1876, by his own donation of a hundred dollars ; 
and gave freely of his means to other societies. His papers show 
gifts to all sorts of benevolences, which, though in small sums, indi- 
cate his interest in and desire to help in every good work. 

If a publication pleased him and he thought it would be useful to 
young people, he would purchase copies of it, whether book or 
serial, and give them to persons he knew. For a considerable period 
he subscribed for many copies of the Sunday School Times and sent 
them himself weekly in separate wrappers to persons whom he be- 
lieved would be pleased to read them. He also subscribed for a 
large number of copies of children's papers for distribution. The 
Christian Herald and books published in connection with it found 
a friend in him. It is impossible for any one to learn how far these 
benefactions may have gone, small though they were, yet far reach- 
ing in their influence. 

With no particular sickness, only a weakening of life forces, for 
the year or more preceding his death, he grew feeble, and finally 
passed quietly into the broader, freer, perfect life, June 6, 1907, at 
the Home. His age was eighty-nine years and three months. He 
was the exemplification, to all who knew him, of the power of the 
truth that what a man is is more effective in his influence for ad- 
vancement along all good lines, than what he does.

ROBERT EAMES OF WOBURN, MASS., AND SOME OF 

HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Communicated by Arthur G. Loring, Esq., of Woburn. 

1. Robekt 1 Eames, # of Woburn after 1651, died there July 30, 1712. 
He had previously been a resident at Charlestown.f His wife Elizabeth 
died at Woburn, Mar. 22, 1710. His first homestead at Woburn Center 
he sold in 1697 to his son John. He owned lots in Woburn at Boggy 
Field, 1694, where he had a house. This estate was in the well-known 
Eames neighborhood, on New Boston Street, where members of the family 
have resided for upwards of two centuries. It is possible that he was the 
Robert Eames who was a soldier in King Philip's war, 1676, with Capt. 

* This Robert Eames of Woburn must not be confounded with the Robert Eames 
of Chelmsford, who died there Apr. 25, 1671, naming in a will, made three days pre- 
vious to his death, his brother named John, and cousin Richard, son of sister Dorothy 
Newham of Farnham, co. Surrey, England. Nor should he be confounded with the 
contemporary Robert Eames, or Ames, of Essex county, whose genealogy is given in 
The Essex Antiquarian, vol. 3, pp. 88-90. 

The John Eames who had a daughter born Feb. 3, 1650 (see printed Woburn vital 
records) is John Amee; his wife was Martha, dau. of Capt. Edward Johnson of Wo- 
burn. (See Register, vol. 61, pp. 198, 199.) 

f The Dedham printed town records, p. 153, give this item : " 1648, 7 mo. 4. The 
Country Rate. Root Eames, 0-2-6." In the same records, p. 190, under date of 30 of 
the 10th, 1651, " Discounted w th Joh Morse in regard of 2 s -6 d lost in ye Countrey Rate 
by Robt Eames ..."

* The name of Harvell is variously spelled Harvey, Haruell, Harvell, Harwill, etc. 
Mr. D. P. Corey, in his History of Maiden, pages 438-439, mentions a stream known 
as Harvell's Brook, and states that one Job Lane sold to James Harvell of Lynn a 
dwelling house with one-half an acre of land, bounded west on the highway and north 
on the brook. After giving a further account of the name, Mr. Corey says that although 
changed in time to Harvey, the name of Harvell became firmly attached to the road and 
brook on which the family lived, and has remained to the present day. 

Mary Harvey, or Harvell, wife of Caleb Eames, was a granddaughter of the above 
James Harvell who came to Maiden from Lynn.

1908.] George Bunker. 67 



GEORGE BUNKER OF CHARLESTOWN, MASS. 

By Hosea Starr Ballou, Esq. 

Among the pioneers of ancient Charlestown, Wyman characterizes 
George Bunker's as " the most distinguished name for local reminiscence 
ever extant in town" (Vol. I, page 150). According to Frothingham 
(History of Charlestown, page 83), " George Bunker appears to have 
been a wealthy emigrant and a large land owner. He had one lot on Bun- 
ker Hill, running over its summit, and hence its name. His shares in di- 
visions are commonly the largest of any." His character as a man, his 
public spirit and his generous deeds have been wellnigh forgotten. 

George Bunker settled at Charlestown prior to Jan. 10, 1633. On Feb. 
10, 1634, he signed a petition to delegate to a board of Selectmen the ordi- 
nary business of the town, and on Mar. 4, 1634, he was enrolled a freeman. 
Whence he came is not certainly known. It has been conjectured that he 
and his contemporary namesake of Nantucket — not a relative, however, 
so far as known — were of Huguenot origin, and that the name was formerly 
Bon Coeur ; but, on the other hand, there is his own signature, under 
date of Feb. 10, 1634 (see fac-simile in Frothingham's History of Charles- 
town, page 51), unmistakably "George Bunker," which points to English 
origin. There is some presumptive evidence that he was from Bedford- 
shire. Many years ago, the late H. G. Somerby found the will of Roger 
Bunker of Tyngryffe, Bedfordshire, proved 1515 (see Somerby Papers in 
N. E. Hist. Gen. Society, box 3, vol. 73, p. 255), of William Bouncker of 
" Tingreyfe," proved 1558 (ibid, p. 261), and of John Bunker of the parish 
Chalgrave, Bedfordshire, proved 1637 (ibid, p. 280) ; and recent investi- 
gation discloses contemporary Bunkers in Bedfordshire at Woburn, Ever- 
sholt, Maulden, and Dunstable — the latter the English home of two notable 
Charlestown pioneers, Robert Long, the inn keeper, and Elder Zechariah 
Symmes. 

In 1638, George Bunker already owned twenty-two parcels of real es- 
tate in Charlestown. (See Boston Rec. Com. Report, No. 3, p. 28.) His 
homestead consisted of about ten acres of land at the " Neck," with house 
and barns thereon, valued at £154 in the inventory of his estate, June 21, 
1666. At Maiden he also owned a farm of two hundred acres, with 
" houses, outhouses, barnes, orchards, and fences " (see Middlesex Co. 
Deeds, Lib. 2, fol. 181), lying south of Salem street and east of Cross 
street as now located, and ten acres of swamp at the head of North River, 
all of which, he says, was " let to farm by me unto Thomas Greene, com- 
monly called farmer Greene of Maiden." This land is now in a thickly 
settled section of that city. George Bunker was one of " the men of 
Charlestown" allotted, on Jan. 9, 1633, ten acre lots at Maiden — the first 
list of proprietors of that town (Corey's History of Maiden, p. 61). At 
Woburn, George Bunker's allotment comprised two hundred and seventy 
acres, centrally located, and included land which he gave to the new town, 
about 1641, for a Common (Woburn Records, vol. 1, pp. 3 and 4). For 
many generations it has proved a valuable benefaction to the city, and 
about that park the civil, educational and religious life of Woburn still 
centres. On Dec. 10, 1663, " for a valuable consideration " paid to him by 
Woburn, George Bunker also gave a deed of two hundred and thirty-eight 



68 George Bunher. [Jan. 

acres lying within the bounds of Woburn, " for the use of the town forever " 
(SewalPs History of Woburn, p. 30, and Cutter's Woburn Historic Sites, 
p. 1). 

George Bunker was also a benefactor of Harvard College, to whom he 
gave, in 1646, eight acres of land (see Middlesex Co. Deeds, Lib. 1, fol. 
104). 

By his will, executed 12 Mar., 1664, and proved 4 Oct., 1664, he had 
already distributed the larger part of his estate among his children. To 
his daughters, Mary, the second wife of Major Eleazer Lusher of Dedham, 
Martha, the wife of John Starr of Boston, — iu whose line are all the lineal 
descendants now living of George Bunker that we have been able to trace, — * 
Elisabeth, wife of Edward Burt of Charlestown, and to his "eldest son, 
John Buncker," he had already given " their several portions " ; and to 
his son Rev. Benjamin (Harvard College, 1658) he had already given on 
account " of his portion the sum of twenty pounds besides his Learning ; 
and to Jonathan, my youngest sonne, seventy five pounds." He had also 
given considerable property to his second wife, Margaret, widow of Elder 
How of Watertown (see inventory, dated 18th of 10th month, 1660), which 
by her will went to her relatives. After his numerous gifts, the residue of 
George Bunker's estate inventoried, on the 21st of June, 1666, £313 : 19: 
6. "One Study at the Colledg," mentioned in the inventory, was not in- 
cluded in the total. His will directed that this residue of his estate should 
be divided equally between his sons Rev. Benjamin, minister at Maiden, 
and Jonathan of Charlestown, adding " And my will and my mind is that if 
either of these my said sons shall see cause at any time afterward to sell 
his pt. in these my houses or lands, or any pt. or pcell of them, that then 
the other of them shall have the first tender of the purchase at such price 
and for such payment as another man would give, or as themselves shall 
agree." In March, 1670, his son Benjamin's share inventoried £421 : 4 : 6. 

Scrupulously fair and jnst to his children, George Bunker was no less so 
in his dealings with others. As an instance, on the 19th of the 11th 
month, 1647 (see Suffolk Co. Deeds, Lib. 1, folio 89), he loaned, to one 
Thomas Erington, £32 secured by mortgage on a house and about twenty 
acres of land in Charlestown, but instead of requiring the usual rights of 
mortgagee to enter and take possession by foreclosure in case of default, 
he generously agreed that the property should be " valued and prized by 
two indifferent men, and if they agree not, an umpire is by them or by the 
said Erington and Bunker to be chosen, and the overplus if any to be re- 
turned to the said Erington." 

In the Vital Records of Charlestown, No. 44 in the list of deaths is that 
of Judith Bunker, wife of George Bunker, who died 10 Oct., 1646. 
No doubt she was the first of the Bunker family to be buried in the an- 
cient burial ground, under the shadow of Bunker Hill, where still stand 
the Welsh head stones in memory of her yonngest son, Jonathan, her 
grandson, Capt. Benjamin Bunker, and her four great-grandchildren who 
died in childhood early in the eighteenth century, viz., Benjamin, Abigail, 
Jonathan, and George Bunker ; and there, no doubt, in 1664, George Bun- 
ker was buried beside his wife, but never in the memory of man has there 
been a memorial stone to either of them. 

*The author has heard of one person in Maine and one in Maryland who, in differ- 
ent lines, claim descent from George Bunker, but a request to each for his line of de- 
scent has not elicited a response. George Bunker has no living descendants in the 
direct male line, so far as can be learned, most of the families of that name in America 
being, apparently, of the Nantucket stock. 



1908.] Some Records of Bedford, Mass. 69 

In 1906, steps were taken to erect a suitable memorial to them in the 
Bunker lot, and recently a stone of antique design has been erected, with 
the following inscription : 

" In Memory of | George Bunker | Distinguished Pioneer of Charles- 
town | Patron of Learning | Died 1664 | Judith Bunker | his Wife | 
Died 10 October, 1646 | Erected by Descendants of their Daughter j 
Martha Bunker Starr | 1907." 

In the census of Jan., 1635-6, George Bunker, of seventy-two inhabi- 
tants of Charlestown, was one of fourteen to have the honorable prefix 
"Mr." In the antinomian controversy, led by Anne Hutchinson in 1634, 
he with leading men in Boston, Salem, Roxbury, etc., and eleven others in 
Charlestown (see Mass. Bay Colony Records, 2d ed., Vol. I, page 212), 
took sides with Sir Harry Vane, Coddington and Wheelright against John 
Winthrop and his partisans. Defeated, only George Bunker and one other, 
James Brown, of the twelve Charlestown men, refused to recant. 

He was worthy to be immortalized by Bunker Hill, and remained a firm 
and consistent defender of the rights of the people. 



SOME RECORDS OF BEDFORD, MASS. 

Communicated by Charles William Jenks, of Bedford. 

The following is a copy of a record of deaths in the town of 
Bedford, Mass., found among papers of the Rev. Samuel Stearns, 
pastor at Bedford from 1796 to 1834. These records begin with 
Dec. 1 [1803], and continue to Dec. 10, 1834. The first entry, 
Dec. 1, is undated, and the top of the page has " continued. " 
After three entries the date 1804 appears. The entries from Dec. 1 
[1803], to April 22, 1808, agree with the record of deaths in the 
Parish book, and are already incorporated in the Vital Records 
of Bedford, Mass., published by this Society in 1903.

82 A Seventeenth Century Letter. [Jan. 



A SEVENTEENTH CENTURY LETTER. 

Communicated by George Dudley Seymour, Esq., of New Haven, Conn. 

In 1902, the writer made a visit to the town of Branford, Conn., 
and called upon Mr. S. A. Griswold, a local collector and anti- 
quarian, who showed him, among other things, a small oaken box 
less than a foot in any dimension, very slightly carved and appar- 
ently of seventeenth century workmanship, which was filled with 
old papers. Among them, and the most interesting, was a letter 
written by Susanna Garment, August 30th, 1684, from Wiggin- 
ton, in the county of Hertford, near Tring, England, to her Aunt 
Sarah Brookes, then living in Milford. The entire letter, with the 
superscription, is given herewith. It is written on a sheet of paper, 
now frayed and water stained, measuring 14 J x 12J inches, origi- 
nally folded to form an envelope and sealed with red wax. What 
is left of the seal is in two parts, and so broken that the design 
cannot clearly be made out, but it appears to be that of a conven- 
tionalized fleur-de-lis. 

The letter seems to have owed its preservation to its subsequent 
use for the keeping of an account by a blacksmith whose entries in 
faded ink practically cover those portions of the paper not occupied 
by Susanna Garment's letter and the superscription. 

The letter is offered for publication by the courtesy of Mr. Gris- 
wold, and it explains itself. 

" Deare & Loving Aunt. 

After my humble service & kind respects to you presented these are to ac- 
quaint you that we have received your letter your letter you sent over by 
Mr. Thomas Oviatt, and are very glad to heare of your good healths all 
of you, your letter was directed to my ffather Henry Dell but he hath beene 
dead about 18 yeares the last Midsummer, and my Mother hath beene dead 
Ten yeares the last Midsummer which I thought good to acquaint you with- 
all because by your letter I understand you knew nothing of their Deaths, 
I was the youngest Daughter of my ffather Henry Dell, by name Susanna 
but I am now wife of James Garment of Wigginton in the County of 
Hartford near Tring, who Desireth to be kindly remembered to you & all 
the rest of our relations, pray remember my kind love to my counsins Wil- 
liam & Sarah and Thomas Wheeler and to my uncle Thomas his Sons, un- 
knowne, I have I blesse God 3 children by name Henry, John, & William, 
and if you please at any time after the returne of Mr. Oviatt to send over 
a letter and Direct it to be left at Aylesbury where Mr. Oviatt sends his 
letter it will be very carefully Delivered and we shall take care to returne 
an answer, we received one letter onely by Robert Tenly, by whom we in- 
tended to have returned an answer, but he fell sicke of the Small pox at 
Tatternall and went away before he was well unexpected whereby we were 
frustrated of our purpose, I know not whether my Brother had wrote any- 
thing about me which occasioned me to write, So having no more at pres-

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 

GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

By Geo. A. Gordon, A.M., Recording Secretary. 

Boston, Massachusetts, 2 October, 1907. The New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society held a stated meeting, agreeable to the By-laws, at half -past 
two o'clock this afternoon, in Marshall P. Wilder hall, 18 Somerset street, the 
President, Hon. James Phinney Baxter, Litt.D., in the chair. 

The minutes of the stated meeting in May were confirmed as records, and the 
chairman then introduced Rev. Anson Titus, of Somerville, who read a thought- 
ful essay on Forgotten Bostonians, which received the applause of the audience, 
with a vote of thanks and a request for the deposit of a copy in the archives 
of the Society. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Librarian, and the Council, severally, pre- 
sented reports, which were received, read, accepted, and ordered on file. 

The list of candidates for membership was read, and a ballot ordered and 
taken, by which sixteen resident members and one corresponding member were 
elected. 

The meeting then dissolved. 

6 November. A stated meeting was held to-day, at the usual time and place, 
the President occupying the chair. 

After the minutes of the meeting on 2 October were read and approved as 
records, the rules of order were suspended and the meeting proceeded to the 
election of a Nominating Committee, in accordance with the provision of article 
3, chapter 4, of the By-laws. The polls stood open until half-past three 
o'clock, this afternoon. 

Messrs. Henry Winchester Cunningham, x\..B., Charles French Head and 
Anson Titus were appointed tellers to conduct the election. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Librarian, the Historian, and the Council, 
severally, presented reports, which were received, read, accepted, and ordered 
on file. 

The list of candidates for membership was read, and a ballot ordered and 
taken, by which nineteen resident members were elected. 

The special Committee in memoriam William Blake Trask, A.M., deceased, 
presented the following report, which was received, read, accepted, and or- 
dered on file and to be spread on the records : 

That the late William Blake Trask, honorary Master of Arts of Dartmouth, was a 
valued member of this Society for fifty-five years, during which for four years he 
served as Librarian, a Director for twenty-seven years, Historiographer for six years, 
one of the Committee on Publications for twenty-seven years, for two years an 
Editor of the Register and for many years a most reliable Contributor, for nine }'ears 
a member of the Register Club, and an original member of the Prince Society, of 
which he was one of its Vice-Presidents from 1870. 

His love for this Society and its work was unlimited, his faithful devotion to its in- 
terests unbounded, and his time, means and service always at its command. 

A careful and painstaking genealogist and historian, through his persistent efforts 
much valuable historical matter has been permanently preserved for future genera- 
tions that would have been irretrievably lost. 

Endowed with a kindly and sympathetic nature, though firm and outspoken for 
justice and truth, his long life has proved that he was stamped with the characteristics 
and virtues of his Puritan ancestry. 

His life was one of deeds and not words, the recorded evidence of which will more 
and more prove its value as the years roll by. 

In valuing his worth to this Society, William Blake Trask, the modest citizen, — the 
conscientious and upright man, — will forever stand upon its rolls as one of its most 
honored and esteemed members. 

Several members spoke in praise and eulogy of Mr. Trask. 
' The tellers made report of their canvass of the election, and the chair pro- 
claimed and declared the election of John Albee of Swampscott, Francis Noyes 
Balch of Jamaica Plain, Hosea Starr Ballou of Brookline, William Carver

4 December. A stated meeting was held to-day, at the usual time and place, 
the President presiding. 

The minutes of the November stated meeting were read and approved as 
records, and Henry Whitney Lamb, Esq., of Brookline, was introduced as the 
essayist. Mr. Lamb read a learned and valuable paper on Jackson and the Sur- 
plus, to an attentive and interested audience, for which the thanks of the Society 
were unanimously voted, and a copy solicited for preservation in the archives 
of the Society. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Librarian, and the Council, severally, pre- 
sented reports, which were received, read, accepted, and ordered on file. 

The list of candidates was read, a ballot ordered and taken, at which eight 
persons were elected resident members of the Society. 

Agreeabie to article 7 of Chapter IX. of the By-laws, the Chairman appointed 
Hosea Starr Ballon and Charles French Read an auditing committee for the 
present fiscal year. 

It was then 

Voted: That F. Apthorp Foster, Treasurer of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, be authorized to sell the fifty (50) shares of the stock 
of the West End Street Railway Company belonging to the Society. 

Voted: That F. Apthorp Foster, Treasurer of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, be authorized to sell the one hundred (100) shares of the 
stock of the Old Colony Railroad Company belonging to the Society. 

The meeting then dissolved. 



NOTES. 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain 
genealogists and publishers have used the name of the Society 
in connection with their own enterprises, the Society again de- 
sires to state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this 
country or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any 
publications other than those which it issues over its own name 
at 18 Somerset Street, Boston.

grandson, John Elkins, mariner, of lands in York County which my father was 
seized of, on the west side of the Kennebec river, which the said Robert Gutch 
bought from Robin Hood, May 29, 1660. Signed Aug. 12, 1732. (Ibid, vol. 16, 
p. 225.) 

Robert Gutch bought from the Indian, Robin Hood, a three mile tract of 
land on the Kennebec river over against Tressick, by James Smith's land, Wines- 
low's Rocks, Alexander Thwait,half way tip the Winnegance meadows, extending 
three miles inland. October 27, 1667. (Ibid, voi. 2, p. 22.) 

. Sarah, daughter of Robert Gutch, now widow Elkins, of Salem, to her son 
and daughter, Nicholas and Mary Lyddiard, one fifth part of a tract of land on 
the Kennebec river. 

Nicholas and Mary Lyddiard, of Boston, mariner, on Jan. 23, 1724, our moth- 
er, Mrs. Sarah Elkins, daughter of Robert Gutch, conveyed all her rights to us 
excepting that part where her son, Thomas Elkins, had built upon; they sold 
all to John Wentworth of Falmouth, and others, Jan. 23, 1723. (Ibid, vol. 13, 
p. 54.) 

Sarah Elkins, aged about eighty one years, declared that fifty six years ago 
she lived at Kennebec, westward side over against the upper end of Arrowsick 
Island, she the reputed daughter of Robert Gutch, with whom she then lived ; 
her father had land running by the river from two and three quarters of a mile 
on to three miles into the woods ; she had a brother named John Filman whose 
wife was Magdalen, daughter of Robert Gutch, and they had a daughter Mary 
Finnan, now Soper, their only daughter now living in Boston, February 21, 1734. 
(Ibid, vol. 17, p. 36.)

Feb. 21, 1734. {Ibid, vol. 17, p. 36.?) 

Samuel Williams, aged about fifty six years, and Joseph Warren, of Rox- 
bury, aged about forty years, testified that they were well acquainted with Rob-

English Records. — The will of George Salter, of Dedham, England, men- 
tions sons Thomas, Samuel and Theophilus, and daughters Abigail and Hannah. 
The will was proved by Mary Salter, relict and executrix. (Waters's Glean- 
ings, p. 829.) 

The will of Elizabeth Salter, Register, lxi, 393, gives the first wife of George 
Salter as Phillippa Rouse, while in the abstract in Register, lv, 107, it is given 
as Phillippa House. 

The reference in George Salter's will to Mary as his relict also needs expla- 
nation. 

Matthew Probee, citizen and distiller of London, whose will is given, Regis- 
ter, xi, 393, was a son of Edward and Elizabeth (Barker) Probee. Elizabeth 
Barker was the daughter of Rev. Matthew and Elizabeth (Cotton) Barker. 
Barker was her second husband, she having first married Edmund the father of 
Sampson Sheafe of Boston and London. (Waters's Gleanings, pp. 1383, 1388*) 

Robert Smith, wine cooper, came to Boston about 1637 with his wife and sis- 
ter Mary Smith. Mary Smith married John Scarborough, who was killed shoot- 
ing off "one of the great guns," in 1646, and his widow married, 1 Oct., 1647, 
Phillip Torrey, and had a son Jonathan, bapt. 22 June, 1651. (See Mass. Ar- 
chives, xv. A, p. 11; Register, ?xl, 63; Waters's Gleanings, 548-551.) The 
reference to Mary Torrey as the daughter of Richard Smutt and sister of Rob- 
ert Smutt, printed in Register, lxi, 394, is an error. Smutt should read Smith.

The Parentage of Dr. Samuel Cobb of Tolland, Conn. — In the following 
notes the history of Samuel Cobb of Tolland, Conn., is briefly given, establish- 
ing beyond reasonable doubt that he was the son of Thomas and Rachel (Stone) 
Cobb of Barnstable, Mass. Thomas Cobb, as is well known, was the son of 
Samuel and the grandson of Elder Henry Cobb, the first of the name in New 
England. 

Mr. Thomas Cobb and Rachel his wife yr Children : 
Samuel Born the 20th of March 1717 * 

(Barnstable Town Records. Names of other children omitted.) 

Will of Thomas Cobb of Barnstable, dated 1 Oct., proved 4 Nov., 1742 : " I 
give to my Son Samuell Cob my books Called the Annotations and also five 
pounds." (Samuel did not receive any of the real estate, the appraised value of 
which was 2000 pounds, all of which was willed to his five brothers and a 
nephew.) (Barnstable Co. Probate, 6 : 234.) 

Will of Rachel Cobb of Barnstable, dated 26 Dec, 1744, proved 11 Feb., 1746, 
bequeaths to her son Samuel Cob, and to other sons and daughters. (Barnsta- 
ble Co. Probate, 8 : 160.) 

Sibley's Annotated Copy of the Catalogue of Harvard College : " Class of 
1737, Samuel Cobb, AB. Place of birth, Barnstable; Age when he entered, 17 : 
Died 6 Apr. 1781 at Tolland, Ct., Age 65th yr." (Mass. Hist. Soc. Library.) 

Samuel Cobb came to Tolland probably about 1743, and took a deed from 
Robert Parker, of Willington, of one hundred and twenty-five acres of land, in 
this town, dated Dec. 19, 1744, in which he is described as being of Tolland. 
He married Mary Hinckley, August 25, 1743, by whom he had two children.

Lockwood Genealogy. — For some reason, the descendants of David 5 Lock- 
wood (182 in the Lockwood Genealogy) were not obtained and do not appear in 
the exhaustive book compiled by Frederic A. Holclen and E. Dunbar Lockwood.

Brooks (ante, vol. 61, page 353). — The Col. Brooks to whom the order 
was addressed, was not John Brooks of Medforcl, afterwards Governor of 
Massachusetts, but Eleazer Brooks of Lincoln, colonel of the 3d Middlesex 
County regiment, of which Nathan Barrett was major. Eleazer Brooks rose 
from first major of Col. James Barratt's (3d Middlesex Co.) regiment, Feb. 7, 
1776, to colonel of the same regiment (Massachusetts militia), commissioned 
Feb. 8, 1776, and later to brigadier-geueral, commissioned Oct. 15, 1778. 

Woburn, Mass. William R. Cutter. 



Collins. — In the Register, vol. 61, page 282, the compiler is in error in 
stating that Abigail Collins who married Sergt. William Ward was daughter 
of Rev. Nathaniel 2 Collins (No. 4). She was daughter of Samuel 2 Collins 
(No. 3), as is proved by Middletowu, Conn., Land Records, vol. iv, page 14, 
wherein Sergt. William Ward of Middletowu sells certaiu land which was 
drawn by Mr. Samuel Collins, father to Abigail wife to the said William Ward; 
also on page 78 of the same vol., where William Ward, Sen., and Abigail his 
wife, of Middletowu, are described as heirs of Mr. Samuel Collins of Middle- 
town, deceased. Mrs. A. C. N. Hawley.

Dickens, Diggins (ante, vol. 61, pages 143-144).— At the time I contributed 
the notes on the Dickens, or Diggins, family of Windsor, Conn., I did not 
know the elate of the marriage of Joseph 3 Diggins with Elizabeth Stoughton. 
I have recently found their marriage record among the early marriages of 
Somers, Conn., under date Dec. 17, 1735, the name of the wife there appearing 
as Elizabeth Houghton, but it is stated that both were of Windsor, and there 
was no Houghton family of Windsor, the evidence being abundant that he did 
marry Elizabeth Stougton. 

I also note that Hannah, 4 daughter of Capt. John 3 Diggins of Chatham (Port- 
land), Conn., married Dr. Thomas Wells, Nov. 26, 1778. 

Boston, Mass. • Matt B. Jones. 



Evarts (ante, vol. 61, pages 25-26). — The compiler states the date of the 
birth of James 2 Evarts, son of John 1 Evarts who founded the family in this 
country, as 1648, and states the date of his marriage to Lydia, daughter of 
Richard Guttridge, as 1660. This would seem to be an error. 

I have in my possession a genealogical table of the family which gives the 
date of James 2 Evarts's birth as July 19, 1638, but I do not know from what 
source the one which I have was compiled. Sherman Evarts. 

Windsor, Vt. 



Gray. — The following item, from a record in my possession, does not appear 
in the printed Vital Records of Pelham, Mass., and was doubtless iu that part 
of the town records which was found to be mutilated and missing when the 
records were printed : 

Nancy Gray was born October 6 th 1778 Daughter of Ebenezer and Agnes Gray. 
Pelham June 19 th 1843 C. D. Eaton, Town Clerk 

Groton, Mass. Lawrence Park. 



Records of Winchester, N. H. — In the Register, vol. 37, pape 296, the 
statement that the records of Winchester, N. H., were destroyed is an error, as 
they were in existence in 1905. C. W. Walker. 

15 Court St., Boston, Mass. 



Shaker Records of Harvard, Mass. (ante, vol. 61, page 341) — It should 
have been stated that these records were secured for the Society by George 
Kuhn Clarke, LL.B., and that the Register was indebted to his efforts.

Historical Intelligence. 

Connecticut Vital Records. — The Connecticut Historical Society has issued 
the following circular : 

"Nearly all Connecticut towns possess Records of Births, Marriages and 
Deaths, which have been kept under various laws from earliest colonial times. 
The older of these records are of extraordinary historical and genealogical in- 
terest to the present resident of the state who can trace his ancestry back to 
the first settlers of Connecticut, and to the one who residing elsewhere, can 
trace his ancestry to Connecticut at any period of the more than the two-and-a- 
half centuries of her history. These ancient registers of the men and women 
who made Connecticut what it has been and is, or who, emigrating, founded 
other commonwealths, are fast becoming, in spite of all due care in their pre- 
servation, illegible or damaged by time and use, and all the records, both the 
most ancient and the more recent, are exposed to loss by fire, neglect, misuse 
or mutilation. 

In many of the towns the earlier vital records, in some cases until after 1800, 
are entered on leaves of the volumes of Deeds-, wherever the Clerk chose ; some- 
times in order of date, but without any regard to arrangement by families, and 
they are not indexed. This renders the task of searching difficult, uncertain 
and expensive. 

Very few of these records have been printed in such a way that the loss of 
the originals would not be a grave and remediless disaster. Of 106 towms in- 
corporated before 1800, the records of only fifteen have been printed verbatim, 
and even then not always completely. The records of about ten more towns 
have been partly printed in periodicals. In the volumes of town histories differ- 
ing amounts of the records of about twenty towns appear beside, usually in 
the form of genealogies, but in some of the volumes the amount of records 
actually printed is very small. Upwards of sixty towns, including some of the 
oldest and historically most important in the state, have never had any part of 
their records printed. In many of these towns owing to the remoteness of the 
town from the railroad, the records are extremely difficult of access. 

In view of the facts here very briefly reviewed, a communication was pre- 
sented at the April, 1907, meeting of the Connecticut Historical Society asking 
that the matter of copying and printing the ancient vital records be referred 
to a committee for investigation and report. This committee made a report at 
the May meeting which was accepted and will be printed in full with the annual 
reports of the Society. Permission was given by the Society to this committee 
to issue a circular, to appeal to the members and to others for funds for the 
purpose of copying and printing records, and to carry on the work in accord 
with the plan indicated in the report. 

The Committee is ready to begin the work of copying and printing, and 
hereby asks for subscriptions of money for this purpose. We estimate that 
five thousand dollars, together with the proceeds of all sales, will be sufficient 
to copy and print the records of all the old towns incorporated before 1800. 
In the printing of all records the arrangement, capitalization, punctuation, 
spelling, abbreviations, and figures will be strictly followed and references 
given to the volume and page of the original. Cemetery inscriptions and 
church records may be included, but will be printed verbatim and not com- 
bined with town records. We have been fortunate in securing without cost 
copies of the records of several towns, and will begin printing as soon as funds 
for the first volume are at hand. It is expected that at least one volume will 
appear during the present year. The towns whose records we can at present 
announce are Bolton, Chatham, Granby and Harwinton. Others are being ar- 
ranged for. 

All money received will be placed in the hands of the treasurer of the Con- 
necticut Historical Society, to form a fund to be used for no other purpose than 
that of copying, printing, and binding the ancient vital records and inscriptions 
of Connecticut, and the proceeds of all sales will be added to the fund. 

Contributions may be sent to Mr. Lucius B. Barbour, 130 Washington St., 
Hartford, or to Mr. Homer W. Brainard, 88 Kenyon St., Hartford, and will be 
acknowledged. Checks should be made payable to Mr. John E. Morris, treas- 
urer of the Connecticut Historical Society.

Subscribers to the fund will have the privilege of purchase at a reduced rate. 

The committee also appeal to the members of the Society and to others to 
acquaint them of any verbatim copies of ancient vital records that may be known 
to them, though at present unknown to the committee. 

The committee serves without compensation, and will continue to do so until 
their work is completed, or uutil discharged by the Society.

Phillimore's Parish Register Series. — Arrangements have now been 
made to issue, in Phillimore's Parish Register Series, the Marriage Registers of 
Hertfordshire, edited by W. P. W. Phillimore, M.A., B.C.L. They will be 
printed and issued to Subcribers in similiar style to the other volumes of the 
Series. Fifty subscribers are needed to justify a commencement, and orders 
should be addressed to the editor, 124 Chancery Lane, London, Eng. 



History of the First Church in Roxbury. — A History of the First 
Church in Roxbury, 1630-1904, has been prepared by Walter Eliot Thwing, 
with an introduction by the Rev. James DeNormandie, D.D., the present 
Pastor of the Church. A chapter is devoted to the history of the five buildings 
of the Meeting House, giving a list of Pastors, Teachers, Ruling Elders, 
Deacons and Members. There are extended lives of John Eliot and Nehemiah 
Walter, early ministers, with shorter notices of prominent officers and mem- 
bers. In the chapter on the first Meeting House will be found an account of 
the gathering of the Church ; and in that on the present one, a biographical 
list of pew holders since 1804, a history of the Communion Silver, of the Sun- 
day School, of matters relating to Worship, the Musical Service and the various 
charitable undertakings of the Parish. The book will be in a limited edition 
for subscribers only. For particulars, address W. A. Butterfield, Publisher, 59 
Bromfield Street, Boston, Mass. 



Sargent Genealogy. — Mrs. Joseph M. Alexander, 25 Curve St., Boston, 
Mass., has prepared a genealogy of the descendants of Lieut. Thomas 3 Sargent 
(Lieut. John, 2 Digory 1 ) of Brattleboro, Vt. (see Register, vol. 58, page 383), 
which will be published if sufficient subscriptions to defray the expense can 
be obtained. 



English Research. — The Committee on English Research, of the New Eng- 
land Historic Genealogical Society, begs to call attention to the desirability 
of reviving investigation concerning the English ancestry of the pioneers of 
New England. From 1883 to 1899, former Committees secured funds by which 
valuable researches among the wills of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 
London were carried on by Henry F. Waters, Esq., the results of which were 
published in the Register, giving clues which led to determining the ancestry 
of many of the early settlers of New England; but since Mr. Waters's work 
was relinquished, comparatively little has been accomplished by the Society in 
that direction. 

The Committee now solicits funds for continuing research in England, on 
the ancestry of the early New England colonists, the results to appear in the 
Register, and it would be glad to receive suggestions and information on this 
subject. 

Clues, not generally known, as to the origin of several early emigrants, have 
come into the Committee's hands, and the Secretary of the Committee will be 
glad to give information to anyone who may desire to make investigations.

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, 
graduation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and 
dates of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in 
full if possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known. 

Abbott. — A. S. Abbott, Bethel, Ohio, is compiling a genealogy of the descend- 
ants of James Abbott, who was born in Somersetshire, Eng., and came to 
Long Island, about 1700, where he married and had five sons and two daugh- 
ters. His son Daniel is believed to have settled in New England ; another son, 
Benjamin, moved to Pa., and left a will, of which his father (James) was 
executor. Assistance is desired in tracing early generations. 

Bennett. — Wesley Weyman, 80 Washington Sq., New York City, is preparing 
a genealogy of the descendants of Moses and Benjamin Bennett of Groton, Mass. 

Clemence, Clemons, Clemens, Clemans, Clemmons, Clements, Clement. — Ray- 
mond E. Van Syckle, G10 Moffatt Bldg., Detroit, Mich., is compiling material 
for a genealogy of these families in America. 

Miller. — Mrs. Sarah D. Cropley, Marblehead, Mass., is compiling a genealogy 
of Francis Miller of New York, and Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia, to be finished 
in 1909. 

Monnet.— Mr. Orra E. Monnette, 406 Merchants Trust Bldg., Los Angeles, 
Cal., until recently of Toledo, Ohio, is compiling a genealogy of the Monnet 
family (variously spelled Monet, Monett, Monnett, etc.). The first emigrants 
to America were French Huguenot refugees, who came about 1700 and settled in 
Calvert Co., Md., descendants afterwards moving to Allegany Co., Md., and 
Hampshire, Co., Va. (now West Virginia). From the latter place, one branch 
moved to Ross Co., Ohio, in 1803. The genealogy will include references to 
allied families of the name Schley, Osborn, Crabb, Hillary (Hilleary), Slagle 
(Von Schlegel), Saylor, Braucher, Schissler, Reichelderfer, Haganbach, Beatty, 
Kinnear, and Hull. 

Bamsdell. — Wesley Weyman, 80 Washington Sq., New York, City, is prepar- 
ing a genealogy of the descendants of Joseph Ramsdell of Lynn, Mass., and of 
Joseph Ramsdell of Plymouth, Mass., besides all other Ramsdell lines. 



Replies to Queries. 

Rebecca Nichols {ante, vol. 61, page 310). — Rebecca Nichols who married, 
in 1664, Samuel House, Jr., of Scituate, Mass., was daughter of Thomas and 
Rebecca (Josselyn) Nichols of Hingham, Mass. See Lincoln's History of 
Hingham, vol. iii, page 84. 



Sutherland {ante, vol. 61, page 203). — Regarding the loyalty to Congress, 
during the Revolutionary war, of John Sutherland then living at Sutherland's 
Falls, Rutland Co., Vermont, the records of the Adjutant and Inspector Gen- 
eral of the State of Vermont show that he served several terms as private and 
lieutenant in the Vermont troops during the Revolution ; and his name appears 
on the Records of the Council of Safety (and of the Governor and Council) as 
a member in 1788. 

The accusation appears in a lengthy article contained in a history of Rutland 
county published in 1886, which is utterly false and contradicted by official 
records. 

He had the misfortune to have been a native of Dutchess County, N. Y., and 
to have gone to Vermont during the excitement over the settlement of the 
"Grants." 

The writer of this reply is a great-grandson of John Sutherland, and 
familiar with the history of the Sutherland family from the first immigrant 
from Scotland to the present time. He was personally acquainted with four 
of the sons of John Sutherland, and frequently visited them and their families 
in Green County, Wis. Aaron F. Randall.

Nine generations are here recorded, descending from William Ballard of 
Sanford Priors, Warwickshire, Eng., later of Lynn, Mass. The method of 
arrangement is a slight variation of the Register plan, but the information is 
presented clearly and concisely, and will be welcomed by those who are inter- 
ested in this family. The illustrations are mostly portraits, unusually well re- 
produced, the type clear, and the volume indexed and neatly bound. 

Bates Bulletin. Vol. 1. No. 1. September, 1907. 8vo. pp. 8. Illus.

Beckwith. Printed by and for the Compilers : Elkhorn, Wisconsin. 8vo. 
pp. ii.-f-78. 

This number corrects a few errors in the preceding numbers and introduces 
some important newly- found facts of record which affect the interpretation of 
the previously printed material. The descendants of Matthew of New London 
and Lyme, Conn., receive the most attention. 

Branchiana, being a partial account of the Branch Family in Virginia. By 
James Branch Cabell. Printed by Whittet & Shepperson, Richmond, Va. 
8vo. pp. 177. Illus. 

This brief but interesting account is the more valuable since only a small 
edition has been printed for the purpose of correcting many errors that have 
been published concerning the family in the last twenty years. The author 
says he " endeavors but to make clear the direct ancestry of Thomas Branch 
of Petersburg and Richmond" and of his two wives. Type, paper and binding 
are excellent.

Tlie History and Genealogy of the Cornish Families in America. By Joseph E. 
Cornish of Boston, Mass. 1907. Boston: Geo. H. Ellis Co., Printers, 272 
Congress Street. 1907. 8vo. pp. 349. Portraits. Price $2.50. 

This genealogy gives an ample account of ten generations descended from 
James Cornish of Simsbury, Conn., as the author chooses to designate this 
migratory ancestor. The Plymouth branch receives due attention, and notice 
is also given to the families of the name found in Maine, Boston, Mass., 
Groton, Conn., New York, the South and England. Both the straightforward 
manner in which the material is presented and the conscientious effort for 
accuracy are exceedingly commendable, and the neat, substantial binding fin- 
ishes a volume which is both attractive and helpful. There are two indices.

4to. pp. 607. Illus. 

Much gratitude is clue the compiler for his commendable and painstaking 
labor in collecting and editing this extensive genealogy, which contains the 
record of more than seven thousand names. It is helpful to have the female 
branches carried out so well, and the biographical sketches, though condensed, 
are exceptionally comprehensive. Many portraits have been inserted, and there 
are two indexes. We wish that a work so deserving of long life and useful- 
ness could have been printed on better paper.

A Becord of Descendants of Hezekiah Hoar of Taunton, Massachusetts, with an 
Historical Introduction by Norton T. Hoar, Cleveland, Ohio. 1907. Pri- 
vately Printed. 8vo. pp. 56. 

This excellent genealogy, which is arranged on the Register plan, gives a 
brief account of some of the descendants of Hezekiah Hoar who settled in 
Scituate as early as 1637. The introduction treats of the earliest records of 
the family, whose name was spelled Hoar, Hoard, Holt ; and a map of that 
section of Massachusetts where the early descendants settled is very interesting. 
The work is good, and more of the same kind is desirable.

Widespread interest should surely be felt in this huge volume on the Milli-

England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, South Australia, Maine, New Hampshire, 
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia,

The most diligent search on the part of the compiler has led to the discovery 
of the descendants of Samuel, youngest of the twelve children of Nicholas. 
Since these records are so difficult to obtain, they should be all the more prized 
by the family they concern. The inscriptions from the old graveyard at Metu- 
chen, N. J., add greatly to the interest of the volume, which is indexed.

tors of Charles Phelps Noyes and Emily H (Oilman) Noyes, his wife. St. Paul,

4to. pp. xii.-f467. Illus. 

Mr. Charles P. Noyes has issued, for the benefit and pleasure of his children, 
this beautifully made and finely illustrated record of their direct ancestors. A 
fan-like chart in the front of the book shows all the families from which they 
are descended. Each branch has also a brief printed account, the most impor- 
tant notices being given to Rogers, Lord, Griffin, Robbins, Lippincott and Swift 
families. A bibliography, too seldom found in works of genealogical records, 
is useful for further investigation. The illustrations are portraits, views and 
facsimiles of autographs and documents. The press-work is exceptionally 
good.

New York. 1907. 8vo. pp. 138. Illus. Price $3.50. 

This useful genealogical and historical account of the descendants of Heman 
Rowlee of Orange County, N. Y., is distinguished by the fact that both male 
and female lines are carried down to the present day. An interesting table is 
given showing the 848 descendants both by families and generations. The illus- 
trations are photographs and are unusually clear. Other families of the name 
of Rowlee who were early settlers in Orange County receive attention, and also 
many of the marriage alliances. The book is indexed, clearly printed on good 
paper, and tastefully bound in cloth. 

The Sacketts of America, their Ancestors and Descendants, 1630-1907. By 
Charles H. Weygant, Newburgh, N. Y. 1907. 4to. pp. 553. Subscription 
price $5.00. Address the author. 

This exceedingly comprehensive genealogy gives the record of more than 
thirteen thousand descendants of Simon Sackett who settled in Cambridge, 
Mass., and of his brother John of New Haven, Conn. The arduous task of 
gathering this material was begun more than thirty-five years ago, and has been 
gleaned from many family papers and ancient documents and manuscripts, as 
well as public records and printed books, making this the most valuable work 
that has ever been published on this family, and one which is absolutely indis- 
pensable to anyone interested in their history. The female lines receive full 
attention. An excellent index and good binding give a suitable finish to this 
useful volume.

The Shepardson Family. A Becord of the Line of Samuel Shepardson, Guilford, 
Vermont. By Francis Wayland Shepardson, 5592 Kimbark Ave., Chica- 
go, 111. August 1, 1907. 8vo. pp. 16. 

Samuel Shepardson was sixth in descent from Daniel of Charlestown, Mass. 
This well-compiled record of his descendants is arranged on the Register plan. 

The Shepardson Family. A Becord of the Line of Zephaniah Shepardson, Guil- 
ford, Vermont. By John Eaton Shepardson. September 1, 1907. 8vo. pp. 19. 

The object in printing this partial record of the descendants of Zephaniah, who 
was fifth in descent from Daniel of Charlestown, Mass., was to secure against loss 
by fire the material already collected, and stimulate interest in completing it. 

Spencer Family Becord of the Springfield, Vt., and Evansville, Wis., Spencers. 
Descendants of Garrard Spencer of Haddam, Conn., Emigrant of 1630. By 
William Henry Spencer. Illustrated. New York. Tobias R. Wright. 1907. 
8vo. pp. 57. 

To one interested in the history of the Spencer family this book will prove a 
boon, as it deals principally with those branches which settled in the West, and 
are for that reason usually inaccessible. The book is well printed on good pa- 
per, and has an index. The cloth binding is attractive. 

The Vamums of Dracutt (in Massachusetts). A History of George Varnum, his 
son Samuel who came to Ipsivich about 1635, and grandsons Thomas, John 
and Joseph, icho settled in Dracutt, and their descendants. Compiled from Fam- 
ily Papers and Official Becords. By John Marshall Varnum, of Boston. 
Boston : David Clapp & Son, Printers. 1907. 8vo. pp. 308. Illus. 

Great credit is due to the patient compiler who has gathered and arranged, on 
the Register plan, so exhaustive an account of eight generations of Varnums 
who sprang from George and descended as the title indicates. The unusual 
number of biographical sketches, contributed by selected writers, is a special 
feature of the work. Extracts from the Revolutionary Diary of Lieut. John 
Varnum of the fourth generation contain most interesting items on the trial of 
Tories, war news, and the question of slavery in Massachusetts. Some beau- 
tifully reproduced portraits, quaint silhouettes, maps, plans and facsimiles con- 
tribute much to the attractiveness and usefulness of this substantially bound 
volume, which is well indexed. 

Charles E. Bolton. A Memorial Sketch. By his wife, Sarah K. Bolton. Cam- 
bridge. The University Press. 1907. 8vo. pp. 118. Illus. 

Charming as this sketch is, its author says " no writer could adequately por- 
tray the character and influence of one whose high ideals were a part of his 
daily life." Although a native of Massachusetts, descended from old New Eng- 
land families, Mr. Bolton spent much of his life in the West, and made his 
home during the latter part of his life in East Cleveland, Ohio, where he was 
chosen mayor of that city and did much for its advance and improvement. All 
through his life he had a wide circle of loyal, affectionate friends who were at- 
tracted by his warm, generous, happy nature, and many tributes of their appre- 
ciation of his fine character are added to the account of his life.

A brief memorial sketch of this resident of Lake Mills, Wis., is given in this

years a prisoner with the British and Indians. Compiled by John Miner 
Carey Marble, whose great-great-grandfather was Samuel Carey's father. 
12 mo. pp. 21. 

This brief account of Samuel Carey traces his ancestry to the Careys of 
Briclgewater, Mass., and gives a thrilling account of his capture by the Indians, 
and his long service as a prisoner. 

Lemuel Cox, Bridge Builder and Inventor, 1736-1806. By Walter Kendall 
Watkins. Maiden, Mass. Printed for the Author, 1907. 8vo. pp. 26. 



106 Book Notices. [Jan. 

In the towii of Boston the problems of the early bridge-builder were not in- 
considerable, and the erection of the first bridge between Charlestown and Bos- 
ton was due largely to the ingenuity of Lemuel Cox. A complete and detailed 
account of this eccentric genius is here given by Mr. Watkins, with his usual 
careful accuracy. 

John Harvard and His Times. By Henry C. Shelley. With illustrations from 
photographs. Boston. Little, Brown, and Company. 1907. 8vo. pp. 331. 
Illus. Trice $2.00. 

It is eminently fitting that the year 1907 should witness the publication of the 
first and only volume on the life of John Harvard. Mr. Shelley, himself an 
Englishman, devotes a long opening chapter to the condition of England at the 
time of his birth. He has taken the information gleaned concerning John Har- 
vard by Mr. Henry FitzGilbert Waters, at the instance of this Society, and has 
woven about it a fabric partly of fact and partly of fiction, using to the greatest 
possible advantage every scrap of actual data, and skilfully and astutely tilling 
the gaps in the meagre record left by this great founder with passages from con- 
temporary lives more fully recorded, thereby making a very interesting story of 
John Harvard's probable daily life in London, Cambridge, and New England. 
The excellent illustrations and large clear type cannot but add to the popularity 
of this beautifully-bound volume. 

Memorial Observances of George Frisbie Hoar. By City of Worcester. Printed 
by order of the City Council. Worcester, Massachusetts. MCM VII. 8vo. 
pp. 34. Portraits. 

The discriminating, adequate and eloquent eulogy on Senator Hoar by John 
W. Daniel, Senator from Virginia, which was delivered in Worcester, Mass., is 
here printed in full, together with the other remarks made on that occasion, . 
and the program of the memorial services. A portrait of Senator Hoar and 
one of Senator Daniel are included in the book and add to its interest. 

A Narrative of the Captivity of Mrs. Johnson. Keprinted from the third edition, 
published at Windsor, Vermont, 1814, with all corrections and additions. The 
H. R. Huntting Company, Springfield, Massachusetts. MCMVII. 16mo. pp. 
194. Illus. Price $3.00 and $5.00. Address the publishers. 

An excellent series of reprints of histories of Indian Captivities is to be 
brought out by these publishers, printed on an all-rag paper, in uniform style. 
This initial volume is most attractive, has been carefully edited, and supplied 
with a historical introduction. The frontispiece is a reproduction of the title- 
page of the first edition of 1796. A photograph of the stones which commem- 
orate Mrs. Johnson's captivity, which she herself had erected in Vermont, also 
appears. 

Address and Poem read at Bowdoin College., June 26, 1907, in Commemoration 
of the centenary of the birth of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow of the Class of 
1825. Brunswick, Maine : Published by the College, 1907. 8vo. pp. 35. 

We are glad to see in print the charming address by Prof. Henry Leland 
Chapman, D.D., of the Class of 1866, and the fine poem by Rev. Samuel Valen- 
tine Cole, D.D., of the Class of 1874. 

Col. Henry Ludington. A Memoir. By Willis Fletcher Johnson, A.M., 
L.H.D. With portraits, views, facsimiles, etc. Printed by his Grandchil- 
dren Lavirua Elizabeth Ludington and Charles Henry Ludington. New York. 
1907. 8vo. pp. 235. 

This charming, simple memoir of a gallant officer of the militia during the 
Revolutionary War is most refreshing in its straightforward account of an hon- 
orable military career, a subject too often tiresomely inflated by writers. Col. 
Ludington had active service in New York, and many orders, letters and docu- 
ments are given in full in tracing the events of his career. Several commissions 
are reproduced, and maps and illustrations are tastefully introduced. A few 
portraits are also included, and it is regrettable that none could be found of the 
subject of this memoir. An index, clear print, good paper and handsome bind- 
ing add to the pleasures of this desirable volume.

This memorial of a distinguished and beloved gentleman, whose position as 
Postmaster-General of the United States brought to the notice of the country 
he served his admirable ability and unusual genius as an organizer, is an ex- 
ceptionally well-compiled and interesting account of a busy, active and useful 
life. His winning personality and loyalty of affection won for him many last- 
ing friendships. Perhaps the most interesting of all the tributes here recorded 
are those from his political opponents, wmose admiration of the man was won 
by his sterling character. The book is indexed, and in every particular is a fine 
specimen of the book-maker's art.

Press, 70 Fifth Ave., New York City. 

It is most creditable that this interesting and well-published history was the 
first act toward the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the incorporate 
existence of the town of Mattapoisett. Naturally much of it relates to the 
mother-town of Rochester, and that narration is ably handled by Mary Hall 
Leonard. The value of the book is greatly increased by the publication of the 
baptisms and marriages from the records of the Second Church of Rochester, 
the list of Rochester soldiers and sailors, and several other papers of Revolu- 
tionary date. Excellent illustrations, some interesting maps, and a good index 
are to be found in this volume, which is a fine example of the book-makiug done 
by the Grafton Press.

One of the three services which commemorated this anniversary was devoted 
to the civic and historical side of the church, the most notable feature of which 
was an address by John Albree, Esq., on the old Colonjal communion service 
owned by the church, telling of its workmanship and its donors. There is also 
a picture of this beautiful silver. The programs of all three services, and the 
addresses then delivered, are printed here in full, also a list of the pastors and

all the streets and ways of that period, but also designates the owners of three 
hundred houses and localities. This list is to be given entire with notes and

Williamsburg, The Old Colonial Capital. By Lyon Gardiner Tyler, LL.D.,

Richmond, Virginia : Whittet & Shepperson, Publishers and Printers. Price 
$2.50. Address Lyon G. Tyler, Williamsburg, Virginia. 8vo. pp. 285. 
Illus. 

This, the first serious and comprehensive narrative of one of the most his- 
torical cities in the original thirteen colonies, deserves an appreciative welcome 
from students, and also offers to the intelligent public a most entertaining and 
interesting account of this " old cradle of the American Revolution." It was 
here that Patrick Henry first made his patriotic and stirring orations, and here 
began the planting of a college in the wilderness of Virginia which finally 
became the College of William and Mary, a most complete record of which is 
here given, with many portraits of her famous men. Several old maps of great 
historical value are reproduced, and the ancient church of Bruton receives 
fitting notice. Williamsburg was the home of the first American theatre and 
the first hospital for the insane; in fact, a record of all its notable achieve- 
ments is to be found in this well-printed and pleasing volume. 

Historic Homes and Institutions, and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of 
Worcester County, Massachusetts, with a History of Worcester Society of An- 
tiquity. Prepared under the editorial supervision of Ellery Bicknell 
Crane. Illustrated. New York, Chicago : The Lewis Publishing Company. 
1907. 4to. 4 vols. xvi.-f554; 457; 404; 422. 

Worcester County may well be congratulated on the publication of this 
monumental history, which chronicles the lives of the men who have given her 
a foremost position in the Commonwealth. Senator Hoar heads the long list, 
and the account of his life begins with the genealogy of his family in his par- 
ticular line, then tells of his education and famous career. This method is 
followed in all the sketches, and the genealogist will be delighted with the 
data recorded here. Five pages in the first volume are devoted to the history 
of the Worcester Society of Antiquity, whose librarian and editor, Mr. Crane, 
has had supervision of this work. The fine illustrations, nearly all portraits, 
are very numerous, and each volume is separately indexed. Full leather bind- 
ings give a handsome finish to these volumes, which are indispensable in any 
library of reference.

The Athenaeum Centenary. TTie Influence and History of the Boston Athenaeum, 
From 1807 to 1907, With a record of its Officers and Benefactors and a com- 
plete list of Proprietors. Printed from the Income of the Robert Charles 
Billings Fund. The Boston Athenaeum, 1907. 8vo. pp. 236. Illus. 

While the privileged reader of the Athenaeum may fully enjoy its present 
capacity for usefulness and pleasure, his appreciation of the mellow fruit of a 
hundred years' growth is usually restricted to an emotional thrill of satisfaction 
in its quiet, dignified yet cordial, atmosphere, rather than an intelligent under- 
standing of the part it has actually played in fostering Boston's " culture" and 
developing the literature of New England. Prof. Barrett Wendell has con- 
tributed a delightful essay on the influence of the Athenaeum on American liter- 
ature, and Mr. Bolton, the present librarian, has given a detailed account of its 
history, describing also the permanent funds, special collections, and gifts and 
bequests. Most of the illustrations are portraits, beautifully reproduced, and 
every detail of the volume is in keeping with the honorable career it here 
records. 

Publications of The Colonial Society of Massachusetts. Volume IX. Collections. 
Printed at the charge of the Robert Noxon Toppan Fund. Boston : Published 
by the Society. 1907. 8vo. pp. xvii.+527. 

There is always a welcome waiting for anything the Colonial Society issues 
in its Collections, as something of entertainment, instruction and value can 
surely be found therein. This number will be a necessary volume of reference 
for every historical researcher, and indispensable to librarians, as it contains a 
check list of the Boston newspapers from 1704 to 1780, most accurately and 
carefully prepared by Miss Mary Farwell Ayer. The bibliographical notes by 
Mr. Albert Matthews contain the most complete and comprehensive history of 
Boston newspapers that has yet appeared in print. Even the devices which 
appeared on the different issues are carefully described. The analytical index, 
always found in these Collections, closes a volume that is a fine example of the 
high standard maintained by this Society. 

Bibliographical Notes on Boston Newspapers, 1704-1780. By Albert Mat- 
thews. Reprinted from the Publications of The Colonial Society of Massa- 
chusetts. Vol. IX. Cambridge: John Wilson and Son, University Press. 
1907. 8vo. pp. 11+403-527. 

As the title states, this is a reprint from the Colonial Society's Publication 
on Boston newspapers, which is noticed above. Not only as a work of refer- 
ence are these Notes valuable, but the wealth of detail contained therein makes 
them exceedingly interesting to any reader of the Colonial period. The index, 
most fortunately, is included in the reprint. 

1607-1907. A Descriptive Catalogue of The Massachusetts Exhibit of Colonial 
Books at the Jamestown Ter- Centennial Exposition. Privately Printed. Bos- 
ton. 1907. 8vo. pp. 78. 

The use and great value of this catalogue, which was printed at the expense 
of Mr. Frederick Lewis Gay, is greatly increased by the careful bibliographical 
and descriptive notes of Mr. George E. Littlefield. 

The Massachusetts Colonial Loan Exhibit at the Jamestown Ter- Centennial Ex- 
position. 1607-1907. Boston: Wright and Potter Printing Company, State

lows a description of the building itself, which is here photographed, and a

Massachusetts.

History of the Fiftieth Regiment of Infantry, Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, in 
the late War of the Rebellion. By William B. Stevens, a member of Co. C. 
Boston : Grifflth-Stillings Press. 1907. 8vo. pp. xii.+399. Illus. 

Although it was not expected by the modest, conscientious author that this 
volume would be of public interest, as it was written especially for the regi- 
ment, yet there seems to be much of permanent worth which will increase in 
value and historic usefulness as the years go by, and it becomes necessary to 
resort to the printed records of the experiences of the men who served in the 
Civil War in order to get the personal note and atmosphere of those days. 
The roster of the companies follows an account of their former activities, ex- 
tracts from diaries, the life of General Dudley, and an appendix of miscellaneous 
incidents. The book is indexed, well printed, and suitably bound in blue cloth. 

Revolutionary Pension Declarations, Strafford County, JSF. H., 1820-1832.

from the Granite State Monthly for August, 1907. Manchester, N. H: The 
Ruemely Press, Printers, 1907. Price 25 cents. 8vo. pp. 35. 

These valuable papers, which had lain for years irhindexed and unknown in 
the Court House at Dover, N. H., were discovered accidentally by Mr. Palmer 
• and Mr. Thompson while they were making a genealogical investigation. The 
records of more than seventy-five Revolutionary soldiers are here printed, and 
further information, as well as the pamphlet, may be obtained from either of 
the above-named gentlemen. It is hoped that they will continue to find and 
put into circulation such valuable and useful discoveries.

Strand. The Knickerbocker Press. 1907. 8vo. pp. 281 ; 284. 

The first conscious purpose in the preparation of this work was to obtain 
and report the facts of ordinary life at the South, most of which were the 
objects of personal observation. The author states that the work has been 
very slightly changed from its earlier edition, which was announced for publi- 
cation in 1857, and was then entitled " Seaboard Slave States" and a " Journey 
in Texas." The typographical part of this edition has been well done, and 
there is an excellent index.

ROBERT THAXTER SWAN. 

By Laura Prentice Swan. 

Robert Thaxter Swan was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, 
May 6, 1843, and died in Brookline, July 26, 1907. He was. the 
son of Samuel Swan and Elizabeth Barker Cushing, both of Dor- 
chester. His father was a teacher, and for many years principal 
in the public schools of Boston. His mother died at the time of his 
birth, but, more fortunate than many others, he did not lack for a 
mother's care, which was given him by his mother's sister as if he 
were her own son, and for her he always felt the tenderest love and 
devotion. 

He commenced his education in the public schools of Dorchester, 
and at the age of thirteen went to a private school at Eagles wood, 
N. J. From this school, unique in its way and startlingly pro- 
gressive for those days, there graduated at that time many whose 
influence in literature, reform, and philanthropy was far reaching. 

In 1859 he was employed in the firm of Denny, Rice and Com- 
pany in Boston, whose business was wool and woolen goods. Here 
he remained until 1868. He commenced work as a boy, but by his 
honesty and faithfulness he was gradually given positions of greater 
responsibility, and traveled for the firm through the sheep raising 
districts of the West for consignments of wool, and while in Boston 
had the management of the wool department in his charge. Because 
of ill health, owing to overwork, he relinquished his position in the 
fall of 1868, and spent nearly a year abroad. 

During the Civil War, at the time of the draft riot in Boston in 
July, 1863, he joined the 44th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers 
for the occasion ; and in 1864 he enlisted, but being hardly more than 
of age, at the solicitation of his father, whose only child he was, he 
withdrew his name, and from his own purse paid for and sent a 
substitute, July 13, 1864. On March 21, 1865, he was chosen 
Corporal of Company A, 2d Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer 
Militia (Lawrence Rifles), and on August 26th of that year became 
its treasurer.

116 Robert Thaxter Swan. [April, 

Upon his return from the year spent in travel he went into the 
lumber business, where he remained for a few years, gaining health 
and strength from the out-of-door life. 

On February 15, 1870, in Boston, he married Laura Prentice 
Crane, daughter of Joshua Crane and Lucy Young Prentice of 
Boston. 

He became Clerk of the Municipal Court of Dorchester in July, 
1873, holding that office until it was abolished in April, 1879 ; was 
appointed Enumerator for the United States Census in May, 1880, 
and in June of that year became Chief Special Agent of the United 
States Census in charge of the Manufacturing Statistics of Boston; 
elected Representative to the General Court from Dorchester, in the 
fall of 1881, and served on important committees during his term 
of service ; became Secretary of the Boston and Arizona Smelting 
and Reduction Company in December, 1881, and in the fall of 1882 
visited and inspected the mill and works of the company in Arizona ; 
appointed Chief of the Division of Enumeration and Agriculture for 
the Massachusetts State Census in May, 1885 ; and in 1888 was 
appointed Secretary of the Commission on Public Records of Parishes, 
Towns and Counties, and on July 5, 1889, was made Commissioner, 
by Gov. Ames. 

On June 7, 1892, he was appointed the first Commissioner of 
Public Records, under the legislative act passed that year. This 
office he held at the time of his death, having been in turn appointed 
for three years by Governors Russell, Greenhalge, Wolcott, Crane, 
Bates, and Guild. 

As can be seen, his was a busy life, always interested in the pub- 
lic welfare ; always ready to be the hard worker on all committees 
in whose duties he was called upon to take part. From the time 
he was chosen captain of the Boat Club at the Eagleswood School, he 
held, all his life, prominent positions in whatever organization he 
was a member. As treasurer, secretary, or delegate, on all commit- 
tees, such as on Charity and Reform, or Public Health and Safety, 
he was always found to be wise and efficient. 

He was a member of Union Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, 
from 1868, and its Secretary for nine years ; a member of St. 
Stephen's Royal Arch Chapter, from 1871, and its Secretary for 
nineteen years ; for many years a member of the Channing Club, Uni- 
tarian Club, New England Historic Genealogical Society, Bostonian 
Society, Twentieth Century Club, Brookline Historical Society, 
Director of the Associated Charities of Boston, President of the 
Dorchester Branch of the Associated Charities, and founder of the 
Dorchester Employment and Relief Society; also, Trustee of the 
Franklin Savings Bank, a member of the Sons of the American 
Revolution, a member also of the Society of Colonial Wars, on 
whose Council he was, and its historian from 1896 until 1903, when 
he declined a renomination. He was an earnest member of the 



1908.] Robert Thaxter Swan, 117 

American Historical Association, at whose annual meeting in Wash- 
ington in 1903 he read a paper on the work of the preservation of 
the Public Records in the State of Massachusetts. 

All his life he attended the First Parish Unitarian Church, Meet- 
ing House Hill, Dorchester, a church whose history dates from 1630, 
the time of the settlement of the town, and no one ever treasured its 
ancient traditions more than he. 

At the time of his death he was in the midst of translating the old 
Indian records of the town of Natick. 

The sterling qualities of his character made him beloved by all 
those who knew him best and who met him in the daily walks of 
life. A keen appreciation of humor made him an ever welcome and 
cheery companion, and many can testify to his quiet and unobtru- 
sive generosity. He was an honest, upright and loyal citizen, a 
trusted friend, and a true and gracious gentleman. But it is as the 
first Commissioner of Public Records of Massachusetts, the first 
State to make such an office, that he will be more generally known 
and his influence felt for all time. No better way, perhaps, could 
be chosen to show the public regard for him than to give quotations 
from the press, written at the time of his death. 

From one source came these words : — 

" He was the first and only Commissioner of public records the State 
ever had. He was exceptionally well fitted for his peculiar duties, and had 
a large sense of the importance of the original records of plantation, town 
and city. Many towns and cities owe it to his intelligence and personal 
interest in their affairs that they still have in possession, and in far better 
preservation than before his office was created, their valuable early records. 
The use of special vaults and safes, the careful use of transparent silk for 
keeping strong and sound the decaying records of former days, the adoption 
of the most indelible inks for public service, and various other details of 
his office received thorough attention from him. He was conscientious and 
painstaking in his service to the state, thoroughly honest, and reliable in 
the extreme, accommodating and gentlemanly in his relations, single-eyed 
for the public benefit, and an ideal official. He exerted himself for longer 
terms for city and town clerks, that these important offices might not be 
the spoil of politics, and he always labored unselfishly for the honesty and 
efficiency of the public service." 

Another notice had this heading, " A Faithful Servant," and 
read : — 

" The death of Robert T. Swan, who had admirably filled the office of 
State Commissioner of public records for nearly a score of years, is a 
grievous loss to the public service. Mr. Swan not only discharged the 
duties of his office with rare intelligence and fidelity, but he had a faculty 
of impressing public officials generally with a deeper sense of the import- 
ance of preserving and protecting their records from the danger of de- 
struction by fire and from the greater peril of careless and slipshod methods 
of handling them. It is simple truth to say that the better care of our 
public records now maintained throughout the state is chiefly due to the 
manner in which Mr. Swan conducted his office." 



118 Robert Thaxter Swan. [April, 

From another notice these words : — 

" Mr. Swan has administered the office with such intelligent fidelity as 
to render it difficult to find a man competent for the succession. He 
created and dignified the office, and the work he has done hy quiet and in- 
expensive methods has produced results which are well known to all per- 
sons who appreciate the inestimable value of the prevention from destruction, 
by time or fire, of the records of the towns and cities of the state. The 
office has become a model for other states." 

From another : — 

" In the death of Robert T. Swan, the late Commissioner of public 
records, the state loses a highly valuable servant. He was the pioneer in 
this department, for he was the only one who ever filled the position. He 
had to blaze the way for his successors, and he did it so well that now the 
state has a standard of service which, if realized by future Commissioners, 
will give the state large protection for its valuable records. Cities and 
towns all over the state are under deep obligation to Mr. Swan, and it is 
to be hoped that a worthy successor will be found." 

From another : — 

" It may truly be said that to Robert T. Swan's perseverance and per- 
sistence so many of Massachusetts' records of the past are preserved and 
will always be safe from fire and other perils. It took him years to im- 
press on the officials and the public the need of protection. But when he 
went it was with a sense of duty accomplished." 

Another quotation, which commenced with "This kind-hearted, 
public-spirited man," contained the same expressions of apprecia- 
tion of his character and work that are to be found in the others. 

As has been said in the foregoing, he adopted the use of perma- 
nent inks for all records, and published a pamphlet on the necessity 
of the use of such ink. He also adopted the use of transparent 
silk for the better protection of the ancient records, and urged the 
towns to make generous use of this method as far as their treasu- 
ries would permit. 

He had more than once reached a town just in time to save from 
the paper mill barrels of papers, among which were found revolu- 
tionary muster rolls and other documents invaluable to the town 
and to the early history of the state. 

Perhaps his interest in public affairs can best be shown by relating 
that, after his death, it became known that he was the man who 
contributed the money necessary to defray the expense of bringing 
before the legislature the matter of taking Sugar Loaf Mountain in 
the Deerfield Valley for a state reservation. Mr. Swan volun- 
teered to aid in this work, and sent a check which was used to de- 
fray the small expenses incurred, but refused to let it be known that 
he had been the contributor of the money, although he had no ob- 
jection to its being published in the event of a favorable vote. 
Since his death, the making public of this fact seemed warranted. 
Sugar Loaf Mountain was saved.

There are those who doubt that inheritance has much to do with 
character, but it is not difficult to believe that his excessive fond- 
ness for and faculty for interesting children, and their strong attrac- 
tion to and love for him, was a direct inheritance of the ability for 
understanding child nature which was the reason of the success of 
his father and uncles, so many years well-known and valued teach- 
ers in the public schools of Boston. 

From a line of eminent physicians and surgeons among his an- 
cestors, as far back as 1756, have come the tenderness and wisdom 
he showed in the care of the sick and helpless, and the patience and 
courage and unselfish endurance in his own lingering illness. 

In all sudden crises of danger he was always in the midst, cool 
and self-possessed, lending a helping hand where most needed, and 
with wisdom controlling and directing. This power, combined with 
his remarkable ability to control and direct a body of men, may be 
traced back to those ancestors of colonial and revolutionary days, 
many of whom held positions, both civil and military, when force of 
character, strength and persistency of purpose, and force of will, 
gained many a hard fight in the days of our early history. 

He was a thoroughly religious man, with great humility living 
his life accordingly, a faithful son, and a most devoted husband. 
He has left a beloved and honored name. 



SHAKER RECORDS OF ENFIELD, N. H. 

Communicated by Franklin P. Rice, Esq., of Worcester, Mass. 

In May, 1895, while pursuing an investigation of the subject of 
communism in the United States, I passed ten days at the Shaker 
settlement in Enfield, N. H., where I was cordially entertained in 
the Office Building by the Trustees, Caroline Whitcher and John 
Bradford, and their associates. I was favorably impressed by the 
evidences of thrift and good order which characterized the affairs of 
the community, and by the intelligence and kindness of the mem- 
bers, to several of whom I am indebted for attention and informa- 
tion. It was my good fortune to meet the late Elder Abraham 
Perkins, who had come over from the Canterbury community for a 
brief visit. He was then in his eighty-eighth year, in vigor of mind 
and body, and in appearance and manner reminded me of my old 
time friend, the Rev. George Allen of Worcester. From him I 
received many facts and statements of interest in relation to the be- 
lief and policy of his people, and I have a lasting and very pleasant 
memory of my brief acquaintance with him. During my stay at the 
settlement I was kindly allowed by the Trustees to make a copy of

ORDINATION of RICHARD BOURNE BVjoHN ELIOT andjoHN CoTToN,

1908.] Richard Bourne, 139 



RICHARD BOURNE, 

MISSIONARY TO THE MASHPEE INDIANS. 

By Mart Farwell Ayer. 

In January, 1634, there appeared on a list of passengers bound for St. 
Christopher and the Barbadoes the name of " Richard Borne," at that time 
a young man twenty-four years old.* We know nothing of his ancestry. 
We do not even know from what part of England he came, although we 
would like to believe that he was connected with some of the prominent 
families bearing the same name in Lancaster.f On the passenger list was 
another of the same name, Thomas Borne, but we cannot even trace a re- 
lationship between the two men. 

The plan for emigrating to the Barbadoes was later abandoned, for we find 
some of the passengers settled before long in Lynn. In 1637, many re- 
moved from this town to Cape Cod and founded the town of Sandwich. 

Others from Duxbury and Plymouth soon joined the new settlement, 
among whom was Richard Bourne. Before long he became a man of 
prestige in the new settlement, for references to him abound in the Records 
of Plymouth Colony. Tradition asserts that he was a man of wealth. He 
served on many committees, and for several years was deputy to the 
Plymouth Court. He also served as a surveyor of highways, as a receiver 
of oil for Sandwich, as one of a committee to buy lands at Falmouth and 
Yarmouth from the Indians. The high esteem in which he was held is 
shown from the fact that on one occasion a woman was ordered to be 
whipped for speaking evil of him.J 

He was twice married ; by his first wife, Bathsheba, daughter of An- 
drew Bartlett, he had four sons : Job, Shearjashub, Elisha and Ezra. The 
first three left a numerous posterity ; of the youngest, Ezra, however, noth- 
ing is known beyond the fact of his birth, in 1648, and he probably died 
young. 

In 1677, he married at an advanced age, for a second wife, Mrs. Ruth 
Win slow. § 

For many years Richard Bourne and Thomas Tupper carried on the 
religious exercises in Sandwich. Although having separate congregations,' 
it was decided that, as there were so few to attend, it was not wise to have 
two services, but that the minister for the day should be the one having 
the larger congregation. The two congregations finally united under the 
administrations of a certain Mr. Smith. I 



* Hotten's Lists of Emigrants. Of the one hundred and three passengers, only two 
were over forty years old. All the passengers were men. 

f Several of the name had held positions of prominence. Sir John Bourne was 
Secretary of State under Queen Mary. His nephew Gilbert was bishop of Bath and 
Wells. 

% Plymouth Records, Vol. 3, p. 96. The execution was respited. 

On one occasion he was fined for having in his possession three unringed pigs. 
This is the nearest to a censure of him I have been able to find. 

§ Richard Bourne's love letters to Mrs. WinsloAv have been published in the New 
England Magazine for 1900, p. 113. After his death, she married for a third husband 
Elder John Chipman.

140 Richard Bourne* [April, 

Ever since his settlement in Sandwich, Mr. Bourne had always taken 
great interest in the Indians living in the vicinity. A few miles from 
Sandwich is a tract of land about ten miles long and five miles wide, the 
Mashpee Reservation, which had been reserved especially for these so- 
called " South Sea Indians." The original grant I have been unable to 
find, either in the State Archives or at Barnstable, but it is said to have 
been obtained through the efforts of Richard Bourne, after 1660. In 1672, 
this grant was confirmed before John Alden by Quachatesset.* 

The ruling elders always endeavored to have the rights of these Indians 
protected. As early as 1658 we find an Indian complaining that horses 
belonging to certain inhabitants of Sandwich had eaten his corn. An order 
was forthwith issued that those owning the horses must give restitution.! 

The first mention of Mashpee in connection with Bourne was in Octo- 
ber, 1654, when he made a request for some land at Mashpee pond, to- 
gether with ten acres of meadow. X The following July he was granted a 
right to the upland meadow at Mashpee pond " provided hee doe it with 
the concent of the Indians to whom it belongeth."§ On June 13, 1660, 
liberty was granted Richard Bourne and Thomas Tupper to look up lands 
for their accommodation towards the South Sea " and that then a competency 
wilbee graunted by Court." The following March he chose some lands 
above Sandwich and also a meadow in Mashpee. According to a deed 
dated May 17, 1661, the land bought in Sandwich cost him £15. It was 
purchased under order of October 2, 1660. June 4, 1661, when the deed 
was confirmed, it was stated that the Court also granted Mr. Bourne a 
parcel of meadow at Mashpee, one half to belong to him and his heirs for- 
ever — the other half to be used by him until the Court object. || 

From this time on, the life of Richard Bourne was closely allied to that 
of the Mashpee Indians. For carrying on his evangelical work he received 
a certain compensation from the Corporation for Propagating the Gospel 
in New England, a corporation established in London, doubtless largely 
through the influence of Edward Winslow, at that time acting as agent for 
the Plymouth Colony in London.^!" This Company, which had been estab- 
lished in 1649, bore the name " The President and Society for the Propa- 
gation of the Gospel in New England." It consisted of a president, -treasu- 
rer, and fourteen assistants. The £12,000 collected in England and Wales 
was spent in purchasing landed property at Eriswell, Suffolk,** and a farm 
at Plumstead, Kent ; also, property in London.ft The rents received were 
to be paid through the treasurer of the Commissioners of the United Colo- 
nies in New England to missionaries among the Indians. The Corporation 
also paid for publishing the Indian Bible and religious tracts, besides erect- 
ing necessary mission houses. The church at Mashpee was paid for in this 
way.

With the Restoration, in 1660, the Corporation became defunct for a 
short time, but a new charter was obtained the following year under the 
name of " The Company for Propagacion of the Gospell in New England, 
and the Parts adjacent in America." The company was limited to forty- 
five members, the first forty-five being named in the charter. Among 
these members were to be found both Dissenters and Churchmen.^ Robert 
Boyle, brother of the Earl of Cork, was the first president, and proved a 
staunch friend to the Indian cause.f It may be interesting to know that 
this society is still in existence, and that Henry H. Edes, Esq., of Boston, 
has written an account of the Corporation, " which is often referred to by 
historical writers under many variants from its legal name," in the Trans- 
actions of The Colonial Society of Massachusetts (Vol. 6, pages 180-184). 

Richard Bourne is first mentioned in connection with this Society in 
1657, when it was stated that he and five others would probably receive a 
salary of £150.$ The only direct information we have from Bourne him- 
self is found in a letter written in 1674 to Daniel Gookin. He mentions 
different places on the Cape where " Praying Indians " were to be found, 
but dwells especially on those living at Mashpee. He makes a special plea 
for books, no doubt to carry on his educational work among the hundred or 
more children under his care. He goes on to state that among the Indians 
there was but one gathered church, "and ninety persons, baptized; be- 
sides yet in full communion, twenty-seven. For Englifhmen that are em- 
ployed in the work, that respects this account, there is only myself. Mr. 
John Cotton is employed in another part of the Colony."§ Four Indians 
were employed with him in carrying on this work, besides others called on 
from time to time. These assistants had not as yet received any salary 
from the honored Commissioners because of the miscarrying of his letter. 

At the dedication of Richard Bourne's Indian church were present Gov- 
ernor Winslow, several of the magistrates, seven teaching elders, besides 
messengers from the different churches. It was estimated that there were 
five hundred persons in attendance. It was not long before Bourne peti- 
tioned the General Court to allow six Indians to have chief inspection, under 
his supervision, over the Reservation. He also asked that one of the num- 
ber be appointed constable. || Such„rapid strides were made in the education 
of these Indians that a convention was held in 1666 at Mashpee to deter- 
mine whether or not they were entitled to church membership. The Indians 
made their confession of faith, which met with the approval of the Gover- 
nor, John Eliot, magistrates and ministers of Plymouth Colony.il Before 
committing themselves, they ordered the confession to be written out and 
sent to all the churches in the colony for their approbation. As no dissent 
was reported, the Indians were, in 1670, admitted into church fellowship,

t" After the Revolution the New England Colonies were declared independent, so 
the Company could no longer carry on work there. In compliance with its charter, 
in 1786 it took up work in New Brunswick, which was carried on until 1804. That 
line of work proving unsuccessful, the Company in 1822 started missionary enterprises 
in British America. ' William M. Venning. Origin of the New England Company.

142 Richard Bourne, [April, 

under the ministrations of Mr. Bourne. The following extract is taken 
from the records of the First Church in Plymouth : 

11 In this year, 70 ; Mr. Richard Bourne of Sandwich sent to the chh for mes- 
sengers to take notice of the fitnesse of sundry Indians to gather into a chh at 
Mashpau. The Pastor, Elder and Secretary Morton were sent thither, Elders 
and messengers of many other chhs were there also, the Indians after confes- 
sions &c. were gathered into a chh, Mr. Bourne chosen and ordained their Pas- 
tor, all the chhs present approving thereof ; old Mr. Eliot and our Pastor (John 
Cotton) laid on hands." 

Their pastor must have won their respect and admiration, for in 1671 a 
declaration was drawn up by the Indians declaring that they would submit 
to the government and would promise to reveal any plots made against the 
colonies. 

The date of death of this faithful missionary is uncertain, although the 
fact that letters of administration were granted to Shearjashub and Elisha 
Bourne in 1682 to administer their father's estate leads us to believe that 
it occurred about that time. 

A copy of the settlement of his estate, and an inventory, may be found 
in the Probate Office in Barnstable. The children of his son Job, deceased, 
were to have the house and land he lived on (appraised at £300) and twenty 
acres of land lying at a place called " ye great hollow " — to be divided by 
the Court after the decease of his widow Ruth. The remainder of his es- 
tate was to go to his sons Elisha and Shearjashub. In the inventory his 
books are valued at £3. 10s.; a servant boy at £8. ; cash at £18. 14s.; 
moveables at £134. 6s. Debts due the estate from English persons 
amounted to £502. 5s. 4d. ; those due from several Indians to £173. 5s. 2d. ; 
uplands and meadows were appraised at £300. He is supposed to have been 
buried near his own house, in the vicinity of the present glass factory.* 

An Indian, Simon Popmonet, was Richard Bourne's successor. Shear- 
jashub succeeded his father in the Mash pee inheritance. He lived there 
and presided over the Indian affairs until his death. He did what he could 
to protect them from white men's cunning by aiding them to obtain a con- 
firmation of the deed of their lands. This grant secured forever to the 
South Sea Indians the Mashpee Reservation, with the exception of the up- 
lands and meadow formerly granted Richard Bourne. The part now trans- 
ferred to his son Shearjashub comprised a tract in Mashpee with two islands 
— one half the fresh meadow at Mashpee bought for Bourne by John Alden, 
July 25, 1661 ; the upland containing thirty acres, given by the Indians 
to him March 9, 1672 ; also the other half of the meadow bought by Alden 
and sold to Shearjashub in 1684 as a site for a meetinghouse.* 

Popmonet's successor, Joseph Bourne, grandson of Richard, was ordained 
their pastor in 1719, but resigned in 1742. He complained bitterly of the 
treatment the Indians had received. He was succeeded by an Indian 
preacher, Solomon Briant, who was in turn succeeded by Rev. Gideon 
Hawley. 

Indian affairs did not prosper as years passed by. The white men living 
in the vicinity took advantage of them, carried off their wood, cut down 
their trees, and took possession of land belonging by right of the Reserva- 
tion. The Indians were put under the guardianship of unsympathetic

commissioners, and had a minister forced upon them who took little inter- 
est in their welfare.* Finally, about 1835, through the assistance rendered 
them by William Apes, a Pequot Indian who had been taken into the 
tribe, the condition of Mashpee Indians was greatly improved. In 1870, 
Mashpee was made a township, and now has her own representatives and 
her own town officers.

Williams Fund, a fund consisting of $16,665.80, left to Harvard College in 1716 by an 
Englishman, Rev. Daniel Williams, the income from which was to be used in support-

congregation, however, appears to have chiefly been made up of a few negroes and 
white people living in the vicinity, as the Indians preferred to attend services held by 
one of their tribe known as " Blind Joe."

SOME RECORDS OF BEDFORD, MASS. 

Communicated by Charles William Jenks, of Bedford. 
[Concluded from page 78.] 

The following memoranda are taken from the records of Jane 
Pollard — later Jane P. Smith — and contain items differing from the 
Samuel Stearns record, such as maiden name, husband's name, name 
and sex of child, etc. 

Jane Pollard was born 24 Nov., 1780, married Thomas Smith, 
8 May, 1833, and died 29 Feb., 1868. Her first record is "Mr. 
Stearns was settled in April 27, 1796." Then follows a record of 
Sunday ministers and texts, interspersed with deaths, till Jan. 5, 
1816. After that, the ministers and texts appear rarely. At first 
her record seems confined to deaths in Bedford, later, to include 
people formerly of Bedford or those connected with present or for- 
mer Bedford families. The last record, in different hand writing 
and in pencil, is "Mrs. Jane P. Smith died Feb. 29, 1868." 
These records came from the papers left by the Rev. Samuel 
Stearns's family.

OUR ENGLISH PARENT TOWNS. 

MALDON.* 

By Oscar Fay Adams, Esq., of Boston. 

At the celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the incor- 
poration of Maiden, Massachusetts, Maj 23, 1849, it was distinctly 
declared that the town derived its name from " a town in England 
in the county of Essex." The orator on that occasion made no 
reference to a difference in the spelling of the name on each side of 
the Atlantic, but he referred to the supposed identity of the English 
original with the Roman Camulodunum. As Colchester is now 
commonly identified with that famous Roman colony, the American 
orator did not enlighten his fellow citizens as much as he probably 
supposed. 

One Joseph Hills, accompanied by his wife Rose, came from 
Maldon to the Bay Colony and was among the early settlers of Mai- 
den. It is in his honor that the settlement is presumed to have 
been named, but the present spelling of the name did not generally 
obtain till the middle of the eighteenth century, since up to that 
time the best written usage favored Maldon. In ancient times the 
name appears in English state papers as Maudone, Maudine, Meal- 
dona, Meandone, Maldun, and Meldun, and, in the sixteenth and 
seventeenth centuries, occasionally Maiden. The only English 
Maiden now is New Maiden in Surrey. American Maidens, beside 
the one in Massachusetts, are found in Illinois, Missouri, New York, 
and West Virginia. 

The denizens of the Massachusetts town might choose much less 
inspiring reading than may be found in the history of their English 
original. In Freeman's "Norman Conquest" is a glowing descrip- 
tion of the Battle of Maldon in the days of Ethelred, in 991, when 
Maldon was but a century old. The Northmen were invading and 
plundering Essex, and Brihtnoth, the Ealdorman of Essex, met 
them at Maldon. Says the historian : 

" The battle took place near the town of Maldon, on the banks of the 
tidal river Panta, now called the Blackwater. The town lies on a hill ; 
immediately at its base flows one branch of the river, while another, still 
crossed by a mediaeval bridge, flows at a little distance to the north. The 
Danish ships seem to have lain in the branch nearest to the town and their 
crews to have occupied the space between the streams, while Brihtnoth 
came to the rescue from the north." 

* Population, 5,600 (1901) ; 44 miles from London (Liverpool St. terminus of Great 
Eastern Railway). Parish churches: All Saints, living, a vicarage; St. Mary, living, 
^rectory. Other churches and chapels : Congregational; 2 Baptist ; Wesley an; Primi- 
tive Methodist; Friends. Three banks. Weekly paper. Market day : Tuesday. Cor- 
poration : mayor, four aldermen, twelve councillors.

Brihtnoth halted on the spot now occupied by the church of Hey- 
brido-e, a suburb of the modern town, with the two streams between 
him and the settlement, and here gave audience to a herald from 
the Vikings, who offered to withdraw on payment of a ransom. But 
the Essex leader was not one to listen to a proposal of this charac- 
ter, and here we have his answer recorded in the famous ' x Song of 
Maldon," as translated from the Anglo Saxon by Conybeare : 

" Byrhtnoth spake. He upraised his buckler, he shook his slender jave- 
lin ; stern and resolute he uttered his words and gave his answer. — ' Hear 
thou mariner what this people sayeth : they will for tribute bestow on you 
their weapons — the edge of their spears, their ancient swords, and arms of 
war, which shall not avail you in the fight. Herald of the men of ocean ! 
deliver to thy people a message in return — a declaration of high indignation. 
Say that here stand undaunted an earl with his retainers, who will defend 
this land, the domain of my sovereign Ethelred, his people and his territory, 
and the heathen shall perish in the conflict ! I deem it too dastardly that 
ye should retire to your ships without joining in battle, since ye have ad- 
vanced thus far into our land, nor shall ye so softly win our treasures ; 
but point and edge shall first determine between us in the grim game of 
war ere we give you tribute.' " 

The herald departed with this stouthearted response, and when 
the tide permitted there was a conflict lasting fourteen days, and 
three Saxons there were tf who kept the bridge," like their Roman 
prototypes, Wulfstan, Aelfere and Maccus. Long after the daunt- 
less Ealdorman was slain, his men fought on beside his body till all, 
or nearly all, had fallen of those nearest him in fealty. Although 
the Northmen won the battle, they were unable to destroy the town, 
nor could they get possession of Brihtnoth's body, which was subse- 
quently buried beneath the lantern of the great church at Ely.* 

It is not a difficult matter to trace out the locality of the battle, 
and the American pilgrim to the sponsor town may stand, if he 
choose, where Brihtnoth stood a thousand years ago. 

Maldon, from the Saxon Maeldune, the cross hill, is not a beau- 
tiful town, architecturally considered, and it has not the broadly 
prosperous air of such near neighbors as Ipswich and Colchester, 
but it is far more picturesquely situated than either, and bears some 
little likeness to the Cinque Port of Rye, in Sussex. An hour's 
ride from London by rail, it is reached from the main line of the 
Great Eastern Railway, either by the branch from Shenfield and 
Hutton Junction, or by that from Witham Junction. It is built 
on the uncomfortably steep slopes of a hill, as well as on the crest 
of it, and besides the long High Street wandering leisurely down 
to the lower levels near Saint Mary's church and the river, there are 
narrow streets and lanes, several of which wind around the hill, 
while others plunge recklessly down the steeper portions of it. 
From the highest points are the fine views across the widening 
Blackwater, and the level meadows to seaward.

VOL. LXII. 12 



164 Oar English Parent Towns. [April, 

Near the top of the High Street is the ancient Moot Hall, built 
in the fifteenth century by Robert D'Arcy, which has been styled the 
historic centre of Maldon. It serves as town hall, court house and 
gaol, and from its lofty roof is the best view attainable in the town. 
Within its dark red walls is a panneled council chamber hung with 
portraits of Elizabeth, Anne, the Second Charles, and the Third 
George, while the muniment room contains town charters granted 
by various monarchs. Maldon was incorporated in 1553, in the 
reign of Mary, and by the charter then given, the Corporation was 
required to provide a prison at the Moot Hall and keep there " tum- 
bril, pillory and gallows." These dismal objects appear to have 
vanished into the past, but through the open door the present writer 
caught sight of some bright steel handcuffs against the wall. Crime, 
or what passed for it, seems always to have been sternly dealt with 
here, for in 1579, when " great Eliza " ruled the realm, three witches 
were sent to Chelmsford for disturbing the peace of Maldon. One 
of them, Ellen Smith by name, had quarrelled with her father-in- 
law and sent a toad to torture him. At least it was a toad in sem- 
blance, but evidence submitted to the effect that the animal when 
held over the fire made the flame " burn blue as azure," proves that 
it was unquestionably an imp of Satan considerably disguised. 

It was during the same reign that the Maldon electors petitioned 
their representatives in Parliament for some relief from the Estab- 
lished clergy, who were, as they pathetically phrased it, " crueller 
than the ostriches of the wilderness, and more unkind than the drag- 
ons," and had been, as they declared, " Popish priests, taylors, 
fletchers, serving-men, wheelwrights, and many of these alehouse 
haunters, dicers, quarrellers, and full of gross sins." A heavy in- 
dictment, truly, but the good folk of Maldon might have spared 
their pains, for although the House of Commons did what they could 
for their relief, nothing came of it, save that one member of the 
House was sent to the Tower on account of his efforts in this regard. 
In the time of Charles the First, Thomas Horrocks, a noted Puritan, 
was rector at Maldon, and, after being ejected but still continuing 
to preach, was cast into the Moot Hall dungeon, where he remained 
some days, by no means tenderly entreated. 

In a narrow street near the Moot Hall, and facing the large inn 
of the Blue Boar, is the church of All Saints, possessing the only 
triangular church tower in the kingdom. It is crowned by a hex- 
agonal spire, and one of its wedge-like corners projects into the 
west end of the nave, producing a singular, one-sided effect. The 
lower stages of the tower are of Norman masonry, the upper, First 
Pointed. The remainder of the edifice comprises nave, aisles, and 
choir, the first-named contemporary with the upper portion of the 
tower, the last being of early Third Pointed date. The Darcy 
chapel to the south, built in the time of the Third Henry, contains 
a notably fine east window, and in the north chapel is a monument 



1908.] Our English Parent Towns. 165 

to Thomas Cammocke, a Maldon worthy, born in 1545, and who 
died in 1602. It displays his effigy and those of his two wives, 
Ursula and Frances, kneeling. 

A romantic tale is told which relates how Captain Cammocke 
carried off the daughter of the Earl of Warwick upon his horse, 
and when the pair came to Frambridge ferry the boat was on the 
other side of the stream, the tide running swift, and pursuers close 
at hand. The lover warned his companion of the danger, but de- 
claring that she would live and die with him, the fair Frances re- 
mained upon the horse, which carried them safe over. At Maldon 
they were wed, and the grim earl relented far enough to say c Seeing 
she had ventured her life for him, God bless her." 

Far down the High Street, near the river, is Saint Mary's church, 
surrounded by a spacious churchyard and in outline showing nave, 
choir, aisles, north porch, and west tower with spire. It is Third 
Pointed in date, for the most part, but the tower, with its huge 
spreading buttresses, is Norman in its lower portions, with Roman 
tiles plentifully interspersed throughout the fabric. 

Near the Moot Hall, to the east, once stood the church of Saint 
Peter, the parish of which was long since united to that of All 
Saints. Only its square grey tower now remains, but joined to it 
is a two-storied brick edifice that might readily be mistaken for a 
church, erected in 1704. This contains the Grammar School and 
the Plumian Library. A churchyard with a wall about it surrounds 
the building. One Thomas Plume, who was born at Maldon in 
1630, rose to be archdeacon of Rochester, and was the founder of 
the Plumian professorship of astronomy at Cambridge, bequeathed 
his library of over six thousand volumes to his native place, a 
gracious gift of a kind not common in the seventeenth century. It 
is housed in low-ceilinged, oak-pannelled rooms hung with old por- 
traits, and may be visited daily from ten to twelve in the morning. 

Across the Blackwater, in the suburb of Heybridge, will be found 
the substantial Norman church of that parish, with its very stumpy 
tower. Here, also, are the larger of the two railway stations, that 
of East Maldon, and several extensive agricultural implement and 
engineering works, while on both sides of the stream are wharves 
and all the various attributes of a river port. 

A mile west of Maldon are the remains of Beeleigh Abbey, 
founded by Robert de Mantel in 1180, for Premonstratensian 
canons. One may go thither by the London Road, but a much 
pleasanter route is that by Beeleigh Road to the footpath at the end, 
which, after crossing the railway by a bridge, pursues a leisurely 
course through the fields. Should one have the conventional notion 
of an abbey in mind, Beeleigh will prove rather a rude shock, since 
at first sight it appears to be nothing more than a farmhouse, show- 
ing a curious conglomerate of timber, brick, and ancient stonework. 
Some features of the abbey will nevertheless be found within, for 



166 Our English Parent Towns, [April, 

the refectory and chapterhouse are nearly entire. The pretty falls 
of the Chelmar are near at hand, and a little farther still is the 
village of Langford, where the parish church shows a Norman nave, 
and the unusal feature, for England, of a semi-circular west end. 

For those desirous of long walks, the trip to Chelmsford via 
Danhury offers attractions, while quite within the limits of a stroll 
is Northey Island, down the Black water. From this point the 
river widens till, at its mouth, sixteen miles from the town, it is 
four miles across. Two miles and a half from Maldon, by the 
Spital Road, is the poor little lath and plaster church of Hazeleigh, 
frequently called the meanest church in Essex, but worth a glance 
for its singular poverty-stricken aspect. 

" I wonder that any man has the face 
To call such a hole the House of the Lord 
And the Gate of Heaven, yet such is the word." 

The noted Royal Academician, John Rogers Herbert, who died 
in 1890, and was the artist of the Justice frieze in the House of 
Lords, was a native of Maldon, and Landseer studied here in his 
earlier career. 



NOTES. 



We find a spirit of unrest in Maldon in 1628, when a company of Irish sol- 
diers were quartered on the inhabitants who had been obstinate in making loans 
to Charles I. On 17 March, St. Patrick's Day, by reason of red crosses having 
been tied to the whipping post and to a dog's tail, there was a dangerous quar- 
rel between the soldiers and tradesmen, and many were grievously wounded. 
About thirty townsmen were wounded, and the town and country were aroused 
and would not be quieted until the soldiers were disarmed. 

In 1635, Maldon, which had begun to decay in her trade, was charged for a 
share in the ship money tax levied by the king on all his subjects of any estate. 

This tax met with great opposition in Maldon, as in other parts, and for the 
next two or three years there was a steady emigration to New England and the 
other colonies to avoid payment. On 17 July, 1638, there arrived at Boston the 
Susan and Ellen. Interested in the undertaking was one Joseph Hills from 
Maldon. He was a son of George and Mary Hills of the parish of Great Bur- 
stead, Essex, where he was baptized 3 March, 1602. He was married there 22 
July, 1624, to Rose Clarke, and before 1632 he removed to Maldon, where he 
had four children baptized. In New England he became prominent in civil and 
military life, compiling our first book of laws and commanding the military of 
the town in which he resided. Through him Maiden in New England received 

its name. 

Half way between Maldon and Colchester, Essex, is the parish of Layer 
Marney. Here, in the church of St. Mary the Virgin, a structure of flint, 
brick and rubble, chiefly in the Perpendicular style, is the tomb of Robert Cam- 
mock who died in 1585. He was a son of John Cammock of Layer Marney. 

Robert had a son Thomas, who married first, Ursula Wyrley of Dodford, 
Northants, and had four sons and five daughters ; and married second, Frances, 
daughter of Robert, the second Lord Rich, prominent in Elizabeth's reign. By 
the last marriage Thomas Cammock had two sons and eleven daughters, a total 
of twenty-two children. Cammock resided at Maldon, and was buried there, 8 
Apr., 1602, in All Saints' Church, in a tomb on which appear the effigies of the 
whole family including the twenty-two children. 

One of the children, Thomas, we find in 1627 commanding the Bobert, a ves- 
sel of seventy tons, owned by his father's nephew, Robert Rich, the second 



1908.] Our English Parent Towns. 167 

Earl of Warwick of that name, who became prominent in the Parliamentary 
party in England and was interested in the colonies. Thomas Cammock was 
a subscriber to the Virginia Company, and in 1628 we find him at Piscataqua. 
On 1 Nov., 1631, he and his associates received a patent for 1500 acres at 
Black Point (Scarborough), in the now State of Maine, and a partnership was 
discussed with Eobert Trelawney. 

Cammock's name was preserved for a time by Cammock's Neck, later Prout's 
Neck, and now Libby's Neck. Cammock died at Barbadoes in 1643. His will, 
dated 2 Sept., 1641, leaves his property to his well beloved friend Henry Joce- 
lyn after the death of Cammock's wife Margaret, but Jocelyn made the bequest 
certain by marrying the widow. 

The Cammocks had lands to Cold Norton, which is four miles South from 
Malclon, and in the church are memorials to the family. 

In this parish, William Vassall married, in 1613, Anne, daughter of George 
King, of Woodham Mortimer, who had property in the parish. At Bradwell- 
next-the-sea, fifteen miles East of Maldon, the Pynchons had holdings, and 
Rev. John Sherman was the rector. 

In the register of All Saints' Maldon, is this entry: "Mr Lawrence Wash- 
ington buried January 21. 1652." This refers to Rev. Lawrence Washington, 
who was sequestered from the rectory of Purleigh, three miles south of Mal- 
don. He had matriculated at Brasenose College, Oxford, in 1621, and became 
rector of Purleigh in 1633. On account of his Royalist sympathies, he was 
ejected by Parliament, on the common excuse given at the time — that he was a 
tippler, etc. 

His widow removed to Tring, Herts, where she was buried 19 Jan., 1654-5. 
At Tring were relatives of Seth Sweetser of Maiden, Mass., who corresponded 
with them (Aspinwall Notarial Records, p. 43). The news from New England 
may have influenced the Washington emigration to Virginia. 

" 13.(8.) 1647 Malachi Browning late of Watertowne, N. E : gent, constituted 
Capt. Robt Harding of Boston his true and lawfull Atturney granting him 
power to compound & agree w th Mr Tho : Browning of Mauldou in Essex clerke 
for his title in reversion unto all those lands in Ratchford hundred in Essex 
wherein the sd Malachie hath an estate in Reversion," etc. (Aspinwall Notarial 
Records, p. 94). Rotchford or Rochford Hundred lies north of the mouth of 
the Thames between it and the river Crouch. 

25 Aug., 1646, Thomas Browing, clerk, Essex, compounded for delinquency. 
He had gone into the King's quarters as chaplain to Lord Wentworth. He sub- 
mitted to Parliament, and obtained Sir Thomas Fairfax's pass, in March, 1646, 
and afterward took the National Covenant and negative oath. For his delin- 
quency he was fined by Parliament £318. He was of Pembroke College, Cam- 
bridge, in 1635, and became rector of Wickham Bishops, Essex, in 1661, and 
resigned from there in 1689. Wickham is three and one quarter miles north of 
Maldon. There were families of the name of Browing at Maldon during the 
seventeenth century. 

Rev. John Cotton married, for his first wife, Elizabeth Horrocks, a daughter 
of Christopher Horrocks, fuller, of Bolton le Moors, Lancashire, nine miles 
northwest of Manchester. Christopher Horrocks is said to have come to New 
England with Cotton, but there is no evidence of his being here, in our records. 
The son of Christopher was Thomas Horrocks, who was born at Bolton in 
1614. He attended school at Bolton, and was admitted sizar at St. John's Col- 
lege, Cambridge, 9 Apr., 1631. He took his B.A. degree in 1634, and M.A. in 
1638. He was master of the Free School, Romford, rector of Stapleford Tawny, 
and in 1650 was presented with the living of All Saints, Maldon. This he held 
till the restoration of Charles II., when he was ejected and cast in the dungeon 
of the town prison. He was several times indicted for holding conventicles. 
Later, he became a preacher to the Anabaptists of Hertford. He died at Bat- 
tersea, about 1687. 

At Danbury Runsell, on the road from Maldon to Chelmsford, Valentine 
Crome, scrivener, of London, had lands. His widow married Sir Freschville 
Holies (Waters's Gleanings, p. 1273). 

Margaret, wife of Samuel Cole, Boston, was the daughter of Isaac Greene, 
of Mersey or Mersea (the marsh isle) . There are two parishes between the 
mouths of the rivers Colne and Blackwater, East and West Mersea. In 1647, 
Margaret Cole constituted as her attorney John Greene of Hatfield Broad Oak,

or Hatfield Regis (Aspinwall Notarial Records). Old Barriugton Hall, the 
original seat of* the Barringtons (a family of strong Puritan sympathies, and 
related to the Protector Cromwell), is now a farm house on the edge of Hat- 
field Forest. 

A view of Fullbridge, a part of Male! on, taken from the tower of the Town 
Hall, shows the Totham Hills in the distance. Henry Sammes of Totham had 
a son Edward, a grocer of London, who in his will, in 1635, mentions his cousin 
Rev. Samuel Stone of Hartford, Conn. (Waters's Gleanings, p. 516). Rev. John 
Sams, of this family, came to Roxbury, Mass., in 1640, aud later returned and 
was minister at Coggeshall, Essex. 

Rev. John Rogers of Dedham, England, father of Rev. Nathaniel Rogers of 
Ipswich, Mass., was also interested in lands at Little Totham, and at Gold- 
hanger, four miles northeast of Maldon. Rev. Daniel Williams, whose library, 
rich in non-conformist literature, is located near Gower Street, London, owned 
lands at Totham. His lands of Beckingham Manor, at Tolleshunt Magna, five 
miles northeast of Maldon, he gave in 1716, by will, for the converting of the 
Indians in New England and the "Blacks" in the West Indies. An ancient 
gateway with four embattled turrets and garden wall are all that remain of the 
manor house. The New England Company for Propagating the Gospel in New 
England are lords of the manor. 

Samuel Hall came to New England in 1633, and* was at Ipswich in 1635, and 
Salisbury in 1640. He became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery 
Company, in 1638. He sold some of his lands here in 1657, and returned to 
England, where he died in 1680, at Langford, a mile and a half northwest of 
Maldon. He left, in his will, money for the poor of several parishes in the vi- 
cinity, including Maldon. Out of his estate in Boston he bequeathed fifty 
pounds to those that suffered by the recent great fire there, and a like sum to 
the towns which had suffered by King Philip's War. 

Edward Hasteler, merchant, Maldon, married Rebecca, the sister of Rev. 
Ezechill Rogers of Ipswich, Mass. He had received from the will of his father- 
in-law, Rev. Richard Rogers of Weathersfield, England, in 1618, money which 
he invested in lands at Maldon, for the benefit of their six children. Of these, 

Mary probably married Matosius, of Maldon. (Waters's Gleanings, p. 

227.) 

Edmund Munnings, aged forty, came to New England in 1635, in the Abigail. 
He returned to England, and died in 1667, at Dengie, twelve miles southeast 
from Maldon. 

General Horatio Gates was born at Maldon, in 1728, and Horatio, Lord Wal- 
pole, was his god-father. His father is said to have been butler to Lord 
Walpole. 

Richard Pratt of Charlestown is given, by Wyman, as the youngest son of 
John Pratt of Maldon, and as baptized 29 June, 1615.

172 Descendants of Robert La\j. [April, 



THE DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT LAY OF SAYBROOK, 

CONN. 

By Edwin A. Hill, Ph.D., of Washington, D. C. 

The account of the Lay family given in the Salisbury Family Histo- 
ries and Genealogies, relates almost wholly to the descendants of the first 
John Lay of Saybrook, and the authors, in their text, Vol. L, page 333, 
as also in the Lay Pedigree Chart, No. VII., given in the Supplement to 
Vol. Ill, place Robert 3 Lay, the Westbrook tavern keeper, husband of 
Mary Grinnell, as the son of John 2 and Sarah (Marvin) Lay, and grand- 
son of John 1 Lay by his second wife Abigail ; but the matter is presented 
in such a way as to plainly indicate a doubt as to the accuracy of the line. 
In fact, John 2 Lay, husband of Sarah Marvin, was born in 1670, and 
would have been only eleven years old at the birth, in 1681, of his reputed 
son Robert, 3 and the line is unquestionably wrong, as has been often noted. 
In 1895, I obtained from Miss E. E. Lay of Guilford, Conn. (No. 22-vii 
of this genealogy), a manuscript upon the descendants of Robert 1 Lay, the 
joint compilation of herself and her nephew the Rev. E. C. Starr of Corn- 
wall, Conn. (No. 44-i of this genealogy), which was based upon family 
records, and various conversations had by herself (born 1828) with her 
great uncle James Lay (No. 13), a brother of her grandfather Col. Asa 
Lay (No. 14), of the Revolutionary army, one of the individuals referred 
to in Prof. Murdock's account as quoted in the Salisbury genealogies, her* 
father Steuben Lay (No. 22), and her own brothers and sisters. This 
document I then copied in part, and upon it this genealogy is to some ex- 
tent based. This partial copy, with notations made by myself, I shall file 
in manuscript in the library of this Society, and it will contain considerable 
biographical matter which cannot here be published for lack of space. 

1. Robert 1 Lay was the first of a line of at least eight successive in- 
dividuals of the name, in lineal descent. The surmise of Savage, that he 
was a brother of Edward of Hartford, Saybrook, and Portsmouth, R. I., 
and of John of Saybrook and Lyme, is confirmed by many family tradi- 
tions. He was born about 1617, and died July 9, 1689, aged 72, the grave- 
stone being still extant in Essex, Conn., cemetery. 

He married, Dec, 1647 (Lay MSS. and Saybrook Records, 1-143), 
Sarah Fenner, widow of John Tully, who died in England in 1644-5. 
She came to America in 1646-7, with son John, who was baptized in 1638, 
and a younger daughter, and in the company of her brothers Arthur and 
William, and died May 25, 1676, aged 59. Her son, the ancestor of the 
Tully family of Saybrook, was a noted teacher of mathematics and naviga- 
tion, and a compiler of almanacs. The will of William Fenner, proved at 
Newport, R. I., Sept. 6, 1680, names his brothers Arthur and John, his 
" late sister Lay " and her two surviving children, and his sister Phebe 
Ward. 

Robert 1 Lay was of Lynn, Mass., in 1638, and came to Saybrook in 
1649. He lived in the present town of Essex (formerly a part of Old 
Saybrook), on the north side of what is now the street on Essex Point, 
leading to the steamboat dock. He was a freeman, May 21, 1657 (Col. 
Rec, 1-297), and "desired," May 17, 1660, " to take care of any of the 



1908.] Descendants of Robert Lay. 173 

estate of Mr. Fenwick, y t is subject to loss and damage " (Col. Rec, 1-535) ; 
a deputy to the General Court, 1666 and 1678, and a large land owner, 
being one of the patentees of Saybrook, and owning land both near Essex 
Point and in the u Oyster River Quarter" (now Westbrook). 

There is recorded in Saybrook Records an agreement between Capt. 
George Denison and wife Ann, of the one part, and Mr. Robert Lay of 
Saybrook, of the other part, providing ior the marriage of their children 
John Denison and Phebe Lay. 

Children : 

i. Phebe, 2 b. 5 Jan., 1651; d. 1699; m. 26 Nov., 1667, John, son of 
Capt. George and Ann (Borodell) Denison of Stonington. (See 
Denison Genealogy, and Hist, of Stonington, Conn., page 389 et 
seq.) Children: 1. Phebe, b. 1667 ; cl. young. 2. John, b. 1 Jan., 
1669. 3. George, b. 28 Men., 1671. 4. Bobert, b. 17 Sept., 1673. 
5. William, b. 7 Apr., 1677. 6. Daniel, b. 28 Men., 1680. 7. Sam- 
uel, b. 23 Feb., 1683; d. young. 8. Ann, b. 3 Oct., 1684. 9. tia- 
rah, b. 29 July, 1692. 10. Phebe, b. probably between 1684 and 
1692. 

2. ii. Robert, b. 6 Mch., 1654. 

2. Robert 2 Lay (Robert 1 ), called " Jr." on the Town Records (Vol. 

I, page 143), where his marriage and the births of his children are 
recorded, born 6 Mch., 1654, died in 1742, married 22 Jan., 1 679— 
80, Mary, born in 1660, daughter of Thomas Stanton by wife Sarah, 
daughter of Capt. George Denison. He lived in Essex, at the Lay 
homestead. 

His will was dated Apl. 22, 1731, and the estate was appraised at 
£6,712. 19s. 7d. The widow, Mar}^, was executrix, Oct. 11, 1743. 
The will names all the children except Phebe, who probably died 
single before her father. (For baptisms of the first three children, 
see History of the First Church of Stonington, pages 196-197.) 

Children : 

3. i. Robert, 3 b. 27 Jan., 1681. 
ii. Sarah, b. 19 Feb., 1682-3. 

4. iii. Mary, b. 3 Oct., 1685; probably m. (1) Christopher Miner, 9 Mch., 

1704 ; m. (2) Samuel Denison (see Wheeler's Stonington, 343, 468). 
iv. Thomas, b. 10 May, 1688; mention of his lands occurs in 1711, on 

Saybrook Records (see Vol. II., p. 474). 
v. Samuel, b. 25 July, 1691; d. 5 Au£., 1691. 
vi. Temperance, b. 25 July, 1691; d. 1755. 

5. vii. Samuel, b. 13 Feb., 1694-5. 
viii. Phebe, b. 14 Aug., 1698. 
ix. Dorothy, b. 3 June, 1701. 

3. Robert 3 (Robert? Robert 1 ), " son of Robert Lay Jr. and Mary 

Stanton, born Jan. 27 th 1680." (See Savage, Stanton Genealogy, 
and Saybrook Records, I., 143). 

" Robert Lay jr. and Mary Grenell were married each to the 
other the 12 th day of December in the year 1703 " (Saybrook Re- 
cords, II, 168), following which entry are the birth records of all 
the children, as given below, except Jonathan and John. 

Two adjoining tombstones in Westbrook cemetery read as fol- 
lows : 

" Here lies the body of Robert Lay died July 1 st 1738 aged 57 
years." 

" Here lies the body of Mrs Mary y e wife of Mr Robert Lay, 
who died June y e 9 th , A. D. 1755, in y e 71 st year of her age." 



174 Descendants of Robert Lay. [April, 

The will of Robert Lay, " secundus," dated June 27, 1738, proved 
July 26 following, in Guilford Probate Court, mentions wife Mary, 
and all of the eight children except John ; Peabody Grinnell, a 
brother-in-law, being appraiser of the estate. 

Robert 3 Lay lived at Westbrook, was the first of the name to set- 
tle there, and was the well known " tavern keeper " who kept the 
tavern near the so-called Dr. Cone house. Mary his wife w r as the 
daughter of Daniel and Lydia ( Peabody) Grinnell, granddaughter 
of Daniel Grinnell, of Little Compton, R. I., by wife Mary, daugh- 
ter of William and Mary Wodell of Boston, Mass., and Ports- 
mouth and Tiverton, R. I., and great-granddaughter of Matthew 
and Rose Grinnell, of Newport, R. I. (See Austin's Gen. Diet, of 
R. I. Settlers.) Daniel Grinnell in his will mentions his daughter 
" Mary Lay," although Austin makes no mention of her. Lydia 
Peabody, her mother, was the daughter of William and Elizabeth 
(Alden) Peabody, of Little Compton, R. I., and granddaughter of 
John Alden of the Mayflower. The Grinnell family were of Hu- 
guenot extraction. Mary (Grinnell) Lay was one of the original 
members of the church at Westbrook. 

Children : 

6. i. Robert, 4 b. 20 Dec, 1705. 

7. ii. Christopher, b. 27 Feb., 1707-8. 

iii. Lydia, b. 26 June, 1710; m. 3 Feb., 1730-1, John Waterhouse (Bai- 
ley II, 113). 

8. iv. Daniel, b. 3 Oct., 1712. 

9. v. Jeremiah, b. 13 Jan., 1715. 

vi. Phebe, b. 27 May, 1717; m. 1 June, 1740, Benjamin Merrill (Bailey, 
II, 114). (See Hyde Gen., No. 6052.) 
10. vii. Jonathan, b. 1721. 

viii. John, m. Deborah ; evidently died without issue, as his will, 

elated Sept. 17, 1756 (Guilford Probate Rec, VII, 104), names 
no children, and at death of his wife, Deborah, leaves all his 
lands to his brothers Christopher, Daniel, Jeremiah and Jonathan, 
and names his sisters Lydia Watrous and Phebe Merrill, who re- 
ceive bequests of money. 

4. Mary 8 Lay (Robert, 2 Robert 1 ), born in Saybrook (now Essex), 3 
Oct., 1 685, is, I think, the one referred to in Wheeler's Stonington, 
pages 343, 468, because, while the descendants of John Lay are quite 
fully traced by Prof. Salisbury, there seems to be no Mary Lay 
among them who could have been the one mentioned by Wheeler, 
who states that Christopher, son of Dr. Joseph and Mary (Avery) 
Miner, of Stonington, baptized July 13, 1684, married Mary Lay, 
Mch. 9, 1704. The death of her first husband, Christopher,* is not 
given, but her marriage to Samuel 4 Denison (George, 3 Capt. 
George, 2 John 1 of Stortford, Eng. ), occurred probably in 1709. They 
lived in Stonington till July 4, 1716, when they removed to West- 
brook. The wife of George Denison was Mercy, daughter of John 
s and Desire (Howland) Gorham, and granddaughter of John How- 
land of the Mayflower. The children are as given below (see 
Denison Genealogy, page 208), but the descendants can be more 
fully traced in Wheeler's Stonington, page 343 et seq. 

*In Wheeler's History of the First Church of Stonington, Conn., is the admission, 
28 April, 1708, of widow Mary Miner (page 192), and the baptisms, 6 June, 1708, of 
Mary and Joanna, daughters of Christopher Miner (page 207) . These entries doubtless 
are of Mary 3 Lay and her children by her first husband. 



1908.] Descendants of Robert Lay, 175 

Children by second husband : 

i. Sarah Denison, b. 6 Jan., 1710; m. William Babcock. 

ii. Samuel Denison, b. 23 Oct., 1711. 

iii. Mercy Denison, b. 1713; m. Nathaniel Chapman. (See Chapman's 

Chapman Family.) 
iv. Elizabeth Denison, bapt. 6 June, 1714. 
v. Joanna Denison, b. 13 Dec., 171G; m. Moses Tyler, 
vi. Mary Denison, b. 6 Jan., 1718. 
vii. George Denison, b. 6 Jan., 1718. 
viii. Christopher Denison, b. 1720. 
ix. Gideon Denison, b. 1724. 
x. Stephen Denison, b. 6 Feb., 1725. 

5. Samuel 8 Lay (Robert? Robert 1 ) was born in Say brook (now Essex), 

13 Feb., 1694-5. The following from Vol. II of Say brook Records 
refers, I presume, to him, since no Samuel of this generation is 
given in the Salisbury Genealogies among the descendants of John 
Lay: 

" Samuel Lay and Hannah Hayden married 1 st June, 1726." 

Children, from Saybrook records : 

i. Mary, 4 b. 29 Dec, 1728. 

ii. Sarah, b. 7 Feb., 1731-2. The marriage of Reuben Chapman and 
Sarah Lay (Bailey, II, 115) may refer to her; and if so, their 
descendants can be traced at page 79 et seq. of Chapman's Chap- 
man Family. 

iii. Hannah, b. 17 Mch., 1734-5. 

iv. Phebe, b. 26 Feb., 1737-8. Bailey (II, 115) gives the marriage of 
John Hull and Phebe Lay, Sept. 27, 1764, which may refer to her. 

v. Temperance, b. 30 Sept., 1740. 

vi. Samuel, b. 1 Mch., 1743-4. 

vii. Robert, b. 4 Jany., 1746-7. 

6. Dea. Robert 4 Lay (Robert? Robert? Robert 1 ), born in Saybrook 

West Parish (Westbrook), 20 Dec, 1705 (or 1706, as stated" in the 
Lay MSS.), married, 3 Nov., 1729, Jemima Pratt (not mentioned 
in Chapman's Pratt Family), and had seven children, as recorded 
on page 234, Vol. IV, of Saybrook records. 

He was for forty years Deacon of the Westbrook Congregational 
Church. By the terms of his father's will he received " my grand- 
father's silver cup." He lived in the old Lay homestead in West- 
brook, situated on the principal street leading to the shore, and di- 
rectly opposite the cemetery. 

The following inscriptions are from adjoining stones in Westbrook 
Cemetery : 

" In memory of Dea. Robert Lay who departed this life Jany. 1, 
1790 in the 84 th year of his age." 

"In memorv of Jemima Lay wife of Robert Lay, who departed 
this life Mch. 9, 1766, in the 56 th year of her age." 

That there was a second marriage is indicated by the following 
from Vol. II, page 1 16, of Bailey's Early Conn. Marriages : " Deacon 
Robert Lay and Elizabeth Denison married June 24, 1768." 

Children, from town records : 

1. Jemima, 5 b. 3 Jan., 1733. 
ii. Lydia, b. 5 Jan., 1735. 
iii. Sarah, b. 14 Jan., 1737. 
11. iv. Robert, " Son of Dea. Robert and Mrs. Jemima Lay died Oct. 10, 
1740 se 1 year" (Westbrook Cemetery). 



176 Descendants of Robert Lay. [April, 

v. Anna, b. 30 Apl., 1741. The marriage of George Wright and Anna 
Lay, 1 Oct., 17G0 (Bailey, II, 115) probably refers to her. 

vi. Phkbe, b. 15 Feb., 1743. 

vii. Robert, b. 8 June, 1745. 

viii. Abigail, b. 25 June, 1747. She became the wife of Dea. Jonathan 
Lay (No. 15), according to Salisbury Genealogies; but in the Lay 
MSS. the first wife of Dea. Jonathan is given as Mary Lay, daugh- 
ter of Robert and Jemima, who died in 1831. 

7. Lieut. Christopher 4 Lay (Robert? Robert? Robert 1 ) was born 27 

Feb., 1708-9, in Saybrook West Parish. My account of this 
family is based almost wholly upon the stones extant in Westbrook 
Cemetery. Whether there were any children other than those 
mentioned below I am not advised. The widow's name was Mary, 
and the marriage (see Bailey) 5 Dec, 1765, of " Capt. Samuel 
Crane and Widow Mary Lay," undoubtedly refers to her. " Lieut. 
Christopher Lay died Oct. 3, 1759 in his 52 d year" (Westbrook 
Cemetery). 
Children : 

i. Lucretia, 5 b. 1749; d. " 25 Nov., 1754, se. 5 years." 
ii. Deney, b. 1754; d. " 6 Nov., 1759, se. 5 years." 
iii. John, b. 1755-6; d. " 7 Nov., 1759, in 3d year." 

8. Daniel 4 Lay (Robert? Robert? Robert}), born 3 Oct., 1712, in West- 

brook, married Anna, daughter of Edward and Mary (Post) Bull, 
who was born 15 Mar., 1712. The gravestones in the Westbrook 
Cemetery read : 

" In memory of Mr. Daniel Lay who died Dec. 28, 1782, in the 
70 th year of his age." 

" In memory of Mrs. Anne wife of Mr. Daniel Lay, who died 
March 5, 1790, in the 76 th year of her age." 

He settled on land deeded to him 22 Feb., 1734-5, by his father, 
at Chestnut Hill, so called, in Say brook West Parish. His will 
(Say brook records, at Deep River, Vol. I, p. 37) mentions his son 
Daniel, who received various tracts of land. 

Children : 

12. i. Daniel, 5 bapt. Feb., 1738-9. 

13. ii. James. 

14. iii. Asa, b. 1749. 

iv. Anna Bull, probably m. Joseph Denisou, 5 May, 1771 (Bailey, II, 
117). 

8. Jeremiah 4 Lay (Robert? Robert? Robert 1 ), born 13 Jan., 1715-6, 
in Westbrook, married, 20 Mch., 1739-40, Prudence Belden, at West- 
brook (Bailey, II, 114). He died probably after 24 Feb., 1792. 
Say brook records (II, 415) give: "Jeremiah, son of Jeremiah and 
Prudence Lay, born Oct. 5, 1745"; and in Westbrook Cemetery 
is the gravestone inscription : " Mrs Deborah wife of Mr Jeremiah 
Lay, died Feby 24 1792 se 72," perhaps a second wife. The Lay 
MSS. credits Jeremiah 4 with the six children named below, but 
gives no dates. 
Children : 

i. Prudence, 6 probably m. Ezra Crane, 27 Nov., 1760 (Bailey, II, 115). 

ii. Sybil, probably m. Job Kelsey, 1 Dec, 1763 (Bailey, II, 115). 

iii. Jeremiah, b. 5 Oct., 1745; probably d. in New York, in 1778, 



1908.] Descendants of Robert Lay. Ill 

on the prison ship Blazmon Castle, and probably m. Statia Bush- 

nell, 8 Men., 1773 (Bailey, II, 118). 
iv. Aaron. 
v. Lois, 
vi. Huldah. 

10. Jonathan 4 Lay (Robert* Robert,' 1 Robert 1 ), whose birth is not found 

on the town records, is named in his father's will, and also in the 
will of his brother John, so there can be no question as to the re- 
lationship. He is evidently the innkeeper referred to by Prof. 
Murdock, and in the Salisbury Genealogies, where it is stated that 
he was born in 1721, died of the smallpox in 1779, and that he 
married Mary' Spencer, who was born in 1721, and died in 1793. 
The gravestones in Westbrook Cemetery, however, give as follows : 

" In memory of Mr Jonathan Lay who died Feby 12 1777, in 
the 69 th year of his age." 

" In memory of Jonathan Lay, who died Oct 7 1793, in the 8 th 
(or 80 th , stone rather illegible) year of his age." 

Neither of which agree well with the Salisbury date of birth, but 
it is not absolutely certain that they refer to this family. 

Children : 

i. Jonathan, 5 " son of Jonathan Lay, bapt Apr. 11, 1742-3 " (Church 
records quoted by Rev. E. C. Starr) ; probably cl. young. 

15. ii. Jonathan, 1). 10 Apl., 1748; d. 13 Apr., 183 1. 

16. iii. Mary, b. 21 Oct., 1749. 

17. iv. Ezra, b. 2G Apl., 1752; d. 31 Jan., 1793. 

18. v. Hannah, b. 27 Apl., 1754; cl. 16 May, 1824. 

vi. Piieije, b. 20 Mch., 1758; d. 1789 or '90: m. Dr. William Gayle, and 
had several children. 

19. vii. John, b. 28 Aug., 1760; d. 5 Feb., 1844. 
viii. Lydia, b. 7 Sept., 1763; d. 7 Dee., 1764. 

11. Robert 5 Lay (Robert* Robert* Robert, 2 Robert 1 ), born 8 June, 1745, 

in Westbrook, married 5 Mch., 1772 (Bailey, II, 117), Desire, born 
15 Jan., 1751, daughter of Josiah Wolcott of Hebron and Saybrook. 
The following inscriptions, from Westbrook Cemetery, refer to 
this family : 

" In memory of Mr Robert Lay who died June 4 1813 aged 68 
years " 

" Lucy, dau. of Robt and Desier Lay, died Aug 31 1794 in 10 th 
year " 

His son Robert 6 Lay, who married Chloe Chapman (see Chapman 
Family No. 813 and 937, pp. 106, 126), sold the estate, aud re- 
moved to Springfield, New York ; his son Robert 7 Lay lived and 
died in Montreal ; and his son Robert 8 Lay at one time lived in Scran- 
ton, Perm. 

No records of the children of Robert 5 Lay, except as above, have 
been obtained by me, but are probably in Saybrook town records 
(at Deep River, Conn.), and the Westbrook Congregational Church 
Records (at Westbrook). 

12. Daniel 5 Lay (Daniel* Robert* Robert, 2 Robert 1 ), born in 1734 or '7, 

bapt. Feb., 1738-9, died in 1807, married first, 15 May, 1763 
(Bailey, II, 45), Mercy, born 27 Dec, 1742, died 29 Dec, 1775 
(No. 2583 'of Chapman's Chapman Family), daughter of Nathaniel 



178 Descendants of Robert Lay. [April, 

Chapman, and a descendant of John Howland of the Mayflower 
(see No. 4-iii of this genealogy) ; and married second, 14 Jan., 
1779 (Bailey, II, 118), Hannah (Stannard), widow of Francis 
Kelsey. 

Daniel 5 Lay subsequently removed, with his family, to western 
New York.

13. James 5 Lay (Daniel,* Robert* Robert, 2 Robert 1 ), styled (; Lieut.," 

lived to an old age in Westbrook, and is said to have had some 
musical ability. He married, Nov., 1767, Abigail Bushnell. No 
record of any children has been obtained, but " Our New England 
Ancestors," page 93, states that Capt. Jedediah Post married Abi-

daughter of Daniel and Ann (Bull) Lay.

THE FAMILY OF JOHN WILLIAMS OF NEWBURY 

AND HAVERHILL, MASS. 

By Cornelia Bartow Williams, of Chicago, 111. 

1. John 1 Williams emigrated probably from England, settling first at 
Newbury, Mass. In 1640, he was one of the petitioners, with Rev. John 
Ward and others, to found a new town, Haverhill, seven miles further up 
the river. In 1642 he was admitted freeman there, and in 1643 was

on file; also, to be entered on the records of this meeting, and a copy sent to 
the family : 

In the death of Capt. Albert Alonzo Folsom, in his Brookline home Dec. 24, 1907, 
our New England Historic Genealogical Society laments the death of a friend and 
valued member. The officers of this Society will miss him, for he was a laborious 
worker in the interest of this institution. On Dec. 21st, Dr. Cabot performed a sur- 
gical operation for an abdominal trouble, which was thought to have been success- 
ful, but pneumonia soon followed, which proved fatal. Capt. Folsom was born at 
Exeter, N. H., Sept. 13, 1834, of sturdy New England stock. 

The business part of his life was mostly spent in Boston. Many years since, Capt. 
Folsom retired from active business and became interested in genealogical and anti- 
quarian research. He was an indefatigable worker in this field of labor, and possessed 
a remarkably good memory, and as a member of this Society has already put on record 
for another Society: "He was honest, earnest, straightforward, upright, despising 
trickery and sham." He was widely known and respected. Capt. Folsom held many 
offices of responsibility. He was a prominent member for years in the Ancient and 
Honorable Artillery Company, and its Commander with the rank of Captain in 1876, 
and the Treasurer of that company at the time of its London visit in 1896. In early 
life he occupied a position in the newspaper offices of the Atlas and Bee and the Journal. 
In 1854 he entered the service of the Boston and Providence R. R. Corporation, in which 
position he remained until 1860, when he was promoted to the office of Transportation, 
with headquarters at Providence. Soon after, he was made assistant superintendent, 
and in 1867 he became superintendent of the road, which office he held up to the time 
it was merged with the New York, New Haven and Hartford R. K. Company. 

Capt. Folsom was a Mason of high order, and one of the directors and trustees of 
the Grand Lodge. Republican in politics. In 1889 and '90 he was of the board of 
Aldermen from Ward 17. when it was an honor to occupy that position. He removed 
to Brookline in 1893, where the widow now resides. The family, besides the widow, 
consists of two sons and two daughters, all of whom are married except the eldest 
son, who resides with his mother. 

Resolved, — That the New England Historic Genealogical Society puts on record the 
deep sorrow for the death of its faithful and honored member, Albert Alonzo Folsom. 
We as members recognized his ability. His great interest in our Society naturally 
made him a leader in the various committees of which he was a valued co-worker. 
Being deeply interested in historical matters, and with a retentive memory, he was 
aide to communicate in an interesting way facts which give delight to his hearers. 
Captain Folsom's presence at our meetings was always gladly welcomed, genial, always 
cordial, and strictly honest. We admired him for his warm heart, sincerity and 
straightforwardness in all his dealings, which made him a highly esteemed citizen in 
the community. We fondly cherish his memory. 

Resolved, — That this brief tribute be put upon the record of this Society, and that a 
copy be sent to the family of the deceased. 

Report was made of the condition of Capt. R. G. F. Candage, when, on mo- 
tion it was 

Voted, — That the New England Historic Genealogical Society learns with 
gratification that Capt. R. G. F. Candage, of Brookline, is recovering from his 
extended illness, and hopes that he will be soon restored to health. 

The meeting then dissolved.

Browne-Lee. — In the Register, Vol. Gl, page 11G, there appeared an article 
entitled li Browne and Lee Family Extracts from the Parish Register of Rus- 
per, Co. Sussex," communicated by a descendant. Since that time, the writer 
of this note being in England, and also a descendant, made further researches 
in this line. In the manuscript room of the British Museum there has reposed 
for many years a collection of materials for the history of the County of Sus- 
sex, made about 1770-1780 by a Mr. Burrell, a man of good family in the Coun- 
ty, who evidently had planned to publish a history of Sussex, but never car- 
ried out his intention. Among the papers are many extracts from parish reg- 
isters. The same Browne baptisms are given in the copy from the Rusper 
register as appear in the Register above-mentioned, with one exception, and 
that an important one, viz : the baptism of Phebe, daughter of William Browne 
and Jane his wife, Oct. 1, 1620. This gives us the approximate date of birth 
of our Phebe Browne, the wife of Thomas Lee, who died during the voyage 
across the Atlantic, and the mother of Jane (Lee) [Hyde] Burchard, who gave 
to her nephew, Joshua Hempsted, the account of her family. The burial of 
Mary, the first wife of the Rev. Joseph Browne, was also on the register, under 
date of Dec. 15, 1605. She was the Rev. Joseph's first wife, and the mother of 
his children. He married second, Feb. 12, 1606-7, Elizabeth Stone, widow of 
John Stone of " The Nunnery," the " great house " at Rusper. As Burrell's ex- 
tracts from the parish registers were evidently confined almost entirely to the 
entries relating to the gentry and the clergymen of the parish, the writer felt 
very certain that William Browne was the son of the Rev. Joseph Browne, and 
consequently pursued the search to Chichester, where his will was found, bear- 
ing date June 16, 1633. His second wife, Elizabeth, died in 1616, and he men- 
tions first, after the poor of Rusper, his "mayde" " Mary ffowler," and ar- 

*A List of " Emigrant Ministers to America " shows that a Roger Price went out to 
New England 1728-1729. Some of the other ministers mentioned in this will are to 
be found in the above book. — G. F.

ranges with great care for her support and subsistence during her life-time. 
There are legacies to two other servants; then he gives to Phebe Leachforde, 
the daughter of his daughter Susan, £5; to his sons William and John Browne 
various pieces of furniture ; to every one of his grandchildren ten shillings 
apiece; to daughter Sarah the wife of Arthur Fenner, gent., £10, and small 
articles; to daughter Susan the wife of Thomas Leachforcl, £10; to daughter 
Phebe the wife of William Simons, £10 and various articles; to son William, 
and Jane his wife, his house and land in Eusper, for their natural lives, and 
after their decease to their sons Thomas Browne and Henry Browne, and their 
heirs forever. All the residue of his goods he gives to his son William 
Browne, whom he makes Executor ; and he appoints as Overseers of his will 
Mr. Benjamin Browne, of Ifleld, his brother, and Arthur Fenner, gent., his son- 
in-law. {Chichester Consistory Court, Vol. xxviii, 278-9.) Mr. Benjamin 
Browne was the Rector of Ifleld, a neighboring parish to Rusper, and he died 
in 1636. 

The perusal of this will suggests a relationship not before known, viz : that 
of the Fenners, of Providence, to the Brownes, for there can be very little doubt 
that Arthur Fenner of Providence, and his brother John Fenner of Saybrook, 
were sons of the " Arthur Fenner, gent.," mentioned in the Rev. Joseph 
Browne's will, as his son-in-law. There was also another brother, William 
Fenner of Providence, who died in 1680-81, and mentioned in his will his sis- 
ters, Sarah wife of Robert Lay of Saybrook, and Phebe wife of John Ward of 
Newport. Here we have the name Phebe, again, which has run through all 
the generations of the descendants of Phebe Browne. One is also reminded 
of Thomas Lechford, the lawyer of Boston, who kept the "Note Book" 
printed some twenty or thirty years ago with annotations by the late Dr. J. 
Hammond Trumbull, and it seems possible that this Thomas Leachforcl might 
be the same man. 

The Rev. Joseph Browne, " Clerk and Parson of Rusper," was buried Oct. 
15, 1633, and we know now that he was the father of " old William Browne," 
and one. of the " predecessors who were ministers back to Queen Mary's time," 
according to " aunt Burchard." Mary K. Talcott.

Dudley-Granger, A Correction. — In all published records of William 
Dudley's lines of Saybrook and Guilford, Conn., his son Joseph is credited 
with twelve children, of whom the third is always given as Israel, baptized 
Mar. 24, 1704. 

In Saybrook Records, at Deep River, vol. 2, page 74, we find : 
Isaac Dudley, son of Joseph and Sarah (Pratt) Dudley, born March 24, 
1703-4.

Harvard.— In the printed matter relating to the ancestors of Rev. John Har-

the Free Grammar School in St. Saviour's, Southwark : — 



1908.] Notes. 201 

Robert, the father of Rev. John Harvard, was present as a parishoner at a meet- 
ing on 20 Feb., 1615, to elect a new governor, and signed the book. 

3 Jan., 1624-5, he was present and was nominated a feofee of Mr. Randall 
Carter's gift of an annuity to a poor scholar at Magdalen Hall, Oxford. 

13 Aug., 1625, the feoffment was executed, but Mr. Harvard does not appear 
as one of the feoffees. The reason, of course, was his death and burial, 24 
Aug., 1625. 

Thomas Harvard was elected governor, 12 Dec, 1646. A new governor was 
chosen in the place of Thomas Harvard, deceased, on 8 Apr., 1668.

Pray. — The following gravestone inscriptions which I recently found, side 
by side, in Glenbrook, Nevada, may be of interest: 

In memory of Capt. Allen S. Pray, native of Dresden, Maine, Died in Glen- 
brook, Nevada, April 24, 1879, aged 62 years and 10 months.

Inscribed Powder Horns. — In the Register (L. 43-5) for January, 1896, 
is an article on Inscribed Powder Horns, which mentions a remarkable collec- 
tion of such horns made by the late Rufus A. Grider, of Canajoharie, N. Y. 
In the Register (LY. 134) for January, 1901, is a notice of Mr. Grider's death, 
which speaks of his labors in this line, and calls him the founder of a new an- 
tiquarian art. Only recently have I learned that his interesting collection has 
been bought by Mr. Isaac John Greenwood, of New York city, and given to 
the New York Historical Society, where it is sure to attract attention. The 
subject is one of sufficient value to be noted in these pages.

Eldredge-Long. — In volume 51, page 47, of the Register, Jehosaphat 
Eldredge, together with Samuel, who married Keziah Taylor, and John, are 
given as probably the children of William Eldred. This may be correct as to 
Samuel and John, but Jehosaphat was the son of Samuel. The will of Richard 
Taylor of Yarmouth (who died Aug. 1, 1703), elated Sept. 2, 1693, with codicil 
dated Oct. 8, 1699, proved Oct. 6, 1703, and recorded in vol. 2, p. 162, at Barn- 
stable, mentions sons Richard and Elisha, daughters Mehitable, Keziah Eldredge, 
and Hannah Jenkins, and grandsons Samuel Eldredge and Jehosaphat Eldredge. 

Josiah Paine, Esq., of Harwich, informs me, as follows: "Jehosaphat 
Eldred of Yarmouth, son of Samuel and Keziah of Yarmouth, born in 1682, 
married Thankful Rider of Yarmouth, went to Falmouth, where he died Sept. 
30, 1765, aged eighty-three years. His wife died there in 1750, aged sixty-one 
years. I think his brother Samuel at one time lived in Chatham. He must not 
be confounded with the Jehosaphat of Chatham. It is possible they were re- 
lated." 

Mr. Paine also writes me : " William Long was the one who married Bridget 
Eldredge in 1714. He is called ' Lang' in the Register, vol. 23, page 179, but 
the name should be Long. I wrote to Mr. Adams, who sent the list for publi- 
cation in the Register, and asked him if it was not Long, and he stated that 
upon close examination he found it so. Mr. Long resided in Harwich some 
years, but his wife dying, he married in Yarmouth and went there to live. His 
son William lived and died in Harwich." 

I may acid that the name Long is common on the Cape, but Lang, so far as I 
know, has not existed there. It' is also a fact that Joseph Eldredge, the brother 
of Bridget, in his will calls her Bridget Long. 

Hawes. — "Gravestone Records" of Yarmouth, by Bowman, page 21, gives 
Mercy Hawes as the wife of Deacon Joseph Hawes. This is an error, and 
the name is very plainly inscribed on the stone as Mary Hawes. In Plymouth 
Co. Deeds, vol. 29, p. 129, is a conveyance dated Sept. 27, 1734, and recorded 
Jan. 30, 1734-5, by which Joseph Hawes, gentleman, Thomas Hawes, cord- 
wainer, Joseph Hawes, Jr., corclwainer, David Hawes, laborer, aud Prerice 
Hawes, mariner, of Yarmouth, Edmund Hawes, cooper, David Parker, yeoman, 
and Mary, his wife, Ebenezer Gorham, joiner, and Temperance, his wife, 
Thomas Annable, husbandman, and Thankful, his wife, of Barnstable, Jonathan 
Sears and Elizabeth, his wife, of Harwich, convey to Cornelius Bennett, of 
Middleborough, physician, all their interest in and to the lands and meadow 
that Thomas Prence, Esq., former Governor, etc., had a right to at the time 
of his death in the Townships of Middleborough and Bridgewater, more par- 
ticularly all the right of Mary, late wife of said Joseph Hawes. 

The conveyance confirms the name as Mary, and also shows that she was 
a daughter of Jeremiah Howes. James W. Hawes. 

35 Nassau St., New York City. 



Bliss.— On page 39 of the Bliss Genealogy, by J. Homer Bliss, is a list of 
the children of Jonathan and Miriam (Harmon) Bliss. The first child is given 
asEphraim, born in Rehoboth, Mass., Feb. 5, 1649. The vital records of that 
town credit a child to Jonathan Bliss on that day, named Ceperianus ; the re- 
cords having a duplicate entry of Jonathan's first six children, in which the 



1908.] JVotes. 203 

first chiicl is named Experience. This last is the correct name, as Experience 
Bliss married Nathaniel 2 Chaffe (Thomas 1 ), Aug. 19, 1669, in Swansea, Mass., 
as per the vital records of that town. That Experience was the daughter of 
Jonathan is proved by extracts from the Rehoboth Proprietors' Land Records : 
" The bounds of the Lands of Nathaniel Chaffee * * * 6^ Ten akers of land be 
it more or less lying on the eastward end of his Father Bliss Lands on the west 
side of Palmers river, being bounded. Westerly Jonathan Bliss lands, Northerly 
a Highway, southerly and easterly the common land." The vital records of Re- 
hoboth do not credit Jonathan Bliss with a child named Ephraim.

Todd. — In the Register, ante, page 49, the first wife of Samuel 3 Todd, Jr. 
(No. 7) was Susanna, daughter of Joseph and Hannah (Munson) Tuttle (see 
"Descendants of William and Elizabeth Tuttle," page 325 and note) ; and ante, 
page 48, the wife of Christopher 1 Todd was Grace, daughter of Michael Mid- 
dlebrook (according to Mrs. Mary Bradstreet Helmershausen, Franklin Grove, 
111.). 

Chatham, Mass., Gravestone Inscriptions. — In a field northwest of the 
Old Burying Ground, and northwest of the house late of Samuel Clifford, and 
south of the road that leads from the late Stephen Smith's to East Harwich, 
just west of an old fence, are a number of graves, probably eight in all, of 
which four have headstones, the inscriptions on which are here given in their 
order from south to north; the fourth headstone being separated by a consid- 
erable interval from the other three: 

" Here lies buried Mrs. Bershebe Smith widow of Mr. Stephen Smith who 
Dec d in Ye 57th year of her age with the small pox. She Dec d Jany. ye 16 th 
1766. 

Here Lies buried Mr. Stephen Smith A. Deacon who Dec d Jany. ye 13 th 1766 
in ye 60 th year of his age with the small pox. 

Here Lies buried Mr. Stephen Rider Dec d Jany. ye 18th 1766 in ye 49th year 
of his age with the Small pox." 

The following inscription is from the separated stone, in a field belonging to 
the late Ruf us Smith, north of the above graves and of the road last mentioned : 

" Here Lies buried Mr. Paul Crowell son to Deacon Paul Crowell & Mrs. Re- 
becca his Wife who Dec d with the Small pox Nov r ye 23 rd 1765. in ye 21 st year 
of his age. 

At the foot of this grave Lyes 2 Infant Children Dec d December ye 12 th 1766." 

On a hill in Chathamport,* east of the late Rufus Smith's and south of the 
late Christopher Ryder's, are three headstones among graves of the Ryder fam- 
ily with whom the small pox epidemic of 1766 is said to have originated, of 
which the following are not complete literal transcripts, but are correct copies 
of names, dates and ages : 

11 Zenas Rider died with the smallpox Jan. 1766 in his ^[illegible]* th year. 
Elizabeth, wife of Zenas Rider, died with the smallpox Jan. 1766 in her 39th 
year. 
John Rider died Jan. 10, 1766, with the smalpox in his 76th year." 

South of the West Chatham school house, by the side of two rocks on land 
now belonging to Richard Young (deceased's grand nephew) and close to the 
fence that separates that land from land on the east now belonging to Sparrow 
Harding, is the following stone which is broken and has fallen down, but the 
inscription is legible : 

11 Mr. Richard Youngf he died July ye 29 1798 in his 23 dV year." 

*Josiah Paine, Esq., of Harwich, informs me that his notes of a visit to this hill 
some fifty years ago show a stone then standing to Ebenezer Eldredge, who died Feb. 
25, 1797, aged 90 years; and also one to Ebenezer's wife Deliverance (Nickerson) El- 
dredge, but he has no note of the inscription on this one. 

Zenas Rider he says died in his fortieth year. 

fThe family tradition is that he died of smallpox, and the character of the burial 
place confirms it. 



204 Notes. [April, 

North of the late Samuel Clifford's, on the east side of the road that leads to 
the late Ruf us Smith's, is part of a stone : 

11 [Ebenezer Paine, who died Jan. 22, 1766,]* in the 38 th year of his age." 

South of the road, a little west of the South Chatham depot, is one inscribed : 

"Abigail, wife of David Eldredge, died Dec. 5, 1849, se. 51 years. 
David Eldredge died Aug. 8, 1845, ae. 61 years."

Historical Intelligence. 

History of Chelmsford, Mass. — Rev. Wilson Waters, M.A., of Chelmsford, 
Mass., is completing the history of the town, begun by the late Henry S. Perham, 
for publication under a committee composed of the trustees of the Adams 
Library, appointed by the town. It is expected that it will take three or four 
years to finish the work and publish it. 



English Research. — The ^Committee on English Research, of the New Eng- 
land Historic Genealogical Society, begs to call attention to the desirability 
of reviving investigation concerning the English ancestry of the pioneers of 
New England. From 1883 to 1899, former Committees secured funds by which 
valuable researches among the wills of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 
London were carried on by Heury F. Waters, Esq., the results of which were 
published in the Register, giving clues which led to determining the ancestry 
of many of the early settlers of New England; but since Mr. Waters's work 
was relinquished, comparatively little has been accomplished by the Society in 
that direction. 

The Committee now solicits funds for continuing research in England, on 
the ancestry of the early New England colonists, the results to appear in the 
Register, and it would be glad to receive suggestions and information on this 
subject. 

Clues, not generally known, as to the origin of several early emigrants, have 
come into the Committee's hands, and the Secretary of the Committee will be 
glad to give information to anyone who may desire to make investigations.

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the fj. S. Government, the holding of other offices, 
graduation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and 
dates of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in 
full if possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known.

This well-compiled, comprehensive genealogy, arranged on the Register 
plan, follows the First Series, which treated of the descendants of Edward 
Allen of Nantucket, and presents an account of the descendants of Samuel 
Allen of Windsor, Conn., including Gen. Ethan Allen of Vermont, Judge Samuel 
Hitchcock, and Dr. Jabez Penniman. The families of Baker, Warner, Bron- 
son, Hitchcock, and Penniman also are noticed. Many portraits and views add 
to the value of this excellent genealogy, which is attractive and substantial in 
appearance.

Following a diagram of the ''Grants on a part of the Bay Path" is a com- 
plete account of the conveyances of each parcel of land down to its present 
owner. The enormous amount of labor and research condensed in these suc- 
cinct paragraphs is hardly realized by the reader, and this finely illustrated arti- 
cle gives views of many of the beautiful houses now standing on these historic 
sites. Eight generations of the Ipswich Appletons furnish new data regarding 
that family. The usual reports of the Society, and a list of its members closes 
this number of its Publications. 

A History of the Cobb Family. By Philip L. Cobb. Part I. Cleveland, 1907. 
8vo. pp. 42. 

The first part of this genealogy takes up the history of Henry Cobb of Barn-

ration. The author states that he has found no relationship between this 
branch of the family and those of Taunton, Boston, and Hingham. 

Family Records of the Descendants of Gershom Flagg (born 1730) of Lancaster,

C. S. Flagg. 1907. [Cadogan-Hatcher Mfg. Co. Printers and Binders, 
Quincy, 111.] 8vo. pp. 160. Illus. 

This genealogy is well-defined, simply arranged, and clearly printed on good 
paper, and is a credit to its compilers. The connection of the American family 
with the English ancestors is given, and also an account of that family back to 
1426. The direct line from Thomas Flagg of Watertown, the emigrant ances- 
tor, to Gershom of Lancester is stated, and beginning with his two sons Eben- 
ezer and Gershom, of the sixth generation, all the known descendants are given. 
The illustrations are good and consist principally of portraits and views. The 
volume is well bound, and there is an index.

Genealogy of the Jaquett Family. By Edwin Jaquett Sellers. Revised 
Edition, 'Philadelphia, 1907. [Press of Allen, Lane & Scott, Philadelphia.] 
8vo. pp. 226. Illus. 

Seldom is the search for the family of an emigrant ancestor so fruitful as in 
this case. This second edition, which is unprefaced, begins with the record of 
Pierre Jaquet of Geneva in the latter part of the fifteeuth century. The record 
of his descendants is fully given, with many extracts from notarial records, 
and other sources of authority. Many statements of the first edition are cor- 
rected or amended, and the portraits of some of the worthies of this family 
found in Geneva or Nuremburg are finely reproduced. It is a matter of regret 
that the state and country in which a city or town is located is omitted, mar- 
ring the scholarly standard which this book maintains as a whole.

Probate and land records of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, as

these accounts of the descendants of Capt. Thomas Perkins of Kennebunk- 
port, Me., of John Fairfield of Charlestown, Mass., and of Richard King of

Address Miss Juliet Porter, 37 Dean St., Station A., Worcester, Mass. 8vo. 
pp. 161. 

Unusual color and life, resulting from the author's individuality of treatment 
in this genealogy, is the salient feature of. the thirty pages which contain a 
faithful chronicle of over three hundred of the descendants of Samuel and Mar- 
tha (Perley) Porter. The clear arrangement is related in form to the Register 
plan, but the biographical sketches, though brief, are unusual. Among the 
fifteen lines of ancestry recorded, the Perley and Porter lines are most fully 
described. The book is well printed on good paper, and there is an index. 

Purmort Genealogy consisting of Nineteen Generations ; nine in England, ten in 
America. By Rev. Charles H. Purmort, D.D., Des Moines, Iowa. Pub- 
lished by the Homestead Company, Des Moines, Iowa. 1907. 8vo. pp. 148. 
Illus. 

Philemon Purmort, the early Boston schoolmaster, is the first of the name 
in America, and, following an account of this interesting pioneer in education, 
ten generations are given, though the author states that there are several links 
in the chain which remain obscure, and it may be there are only nine genera- 
tions in America. The Purmort coat-of-arms is given as a frontispiece, and 
the author's explanation of its component parts possesses more originality 
than is usually met in heraldic descriptions. The illustrations are chiefly por- 
traits, and add greatly to the attractiveness of the volume.

Illus. 

The compiler has accomplished her desire to carry down to the present gen- 
eration the Whitmore Genealogy published by Hon. William H. Whitmore in 
1855, adding as many family sketches as possible. The additional information 
will be most useful to genealogists. The book is printed on an excellent deckle-

are printed as they have been filled out, and following each chart is an account 
of each family mentioned therein, and the line, with dates and facts, descend- 
ing to the persons above named. The book is well printed on heavy paper, 
and very interesting. 

The Woolson-Fenno Ancestry and Allied Lines, with Biographical Sketches. By 
Lula May (Fexno) Woolson and Charles Amasa Woolson of Springfield, 
Vermont. Privately printed. 1907. 8vo. pp. 143. Illus. 

The pedigree charts of Charles Amasa Woolson and Lula May Fenno, to be 
found in the front of this volume, afford an excellent bird's-eye view of its con- 
tents. In addition to the two principal lines, seventy-five allied families are 
noticed, and many biographical sketches given. The excellent illustrations 
include portaits and views of homesteads. The press work is especially com- 
mendable, and it is a pleasure to note that this work, which has necessarily 
consumed much time in preparation, is likely to have a long life of usefulness 
by being printed on a strong, durable paper.

The story of Dr. Osgood's service in Burma as a Baptist missionary is here 
well told, and also there is an account of his father's work among the Indians 
of Lake Ontario, N. Y. The genealogy of his descendants, in the last few pages

The celebrations of the Longfellow and Agassiz anniversaries, in which the 
Cambridge Historical Society played an active part, will probably attract the

sketch in the Notes at the end of each volume, and great care and labor has 
been expended on this edition in the more than fifteen hundred of these sketches.

Indian troubles, commercial enterprises, ecclesiastical history, Revolutionary 
record, highways and transportation, public benefactions, libraries, lawyers, 
physicians, and town officers. Part Two devotes about one hundred and fifty

Years of persistent effort on the part of a few townsmen finally resulted in 
this valuable and comprehensive record of the town, which also includes the 
early history of Haverhill and Methuen, Mass. Its topography, settlement and 
development are well described, as is also its ecclesiastical, political, military, 
educational, and industrial progression. The most unique feature of the work, 
however, is the tables giving the births, marriages, and deaths in the town, 
arranged in alphabetical order. Maps and illustrations are inserted freely, and 
two indexes close a volume which is a credit to its town.

CAPTAIN ALBERT ALONZO FOLSOM. 

By George Sumner Mann, Esq. 

Albert Alonzo Folsom was born in Exeter, N. H., Septem- 
ber 13, 1834, son of John Fulfbrd and Caroline Rogers (Shaw) 
Folsom, and a direct descendant of John Foulsham who was bap- 
tized in 1615 at Hingham, England, by the Rev. Peter Hobart, 
afterwards minister of the church at Hingham, Mass. 

John Foulsham married, October 4, 1636, Mary, daughter of 
Edward and Mary (Clarke) Gilman, and accompanied by his wife, 
her father and mother, and two other relatives, sailed for New 
England in the ship Diligent of Ipswich, landing at Boston, Au- 
gust 10, 1638. After residing in Hingham, Mass., for twelve or 
fifteen years, he followed his father-in-law, Edward Gilman, to Ex- 
eter, N. H., where the first mention of him is in the town records 
of 1655. He was one of the selectmen of Exeter in 1659, and a 
juryman in 1662. The direct family line, down to the subject of 
this sketch, is : John, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 3 James, 4 James, 5 John, 6 John 
Fulford, 7 Albert Alonzo 8 . 

John Fulford Folsom, born at Exeter, N. H., in 1805, married, 
in 1833, Caroline (Rogers) Shaw, granddaughter of the Rev. Jere- 
miah Shaw of New Hampshire, and of Captain Benjamin Rogers, 
of Newburyport, who was a privateer in the Revolution and a 
prisoner of war of the British at New York until he was exchanged. 

Albert Alonzo Folsom accompanied his parents to Boston, in 
1842, being then eight years old. For the next seven years his 
time was spent in the public schools of Boston. Soon after, he en- 
tered the newspaper office of the Daily Bee where he remained five 
years, assisting in the general work of printing, reporting, and per- 
forming clerical service in the counting-room. These years in this 
position proved to be of great advantage to his studious and recep- 
tive mind. It developed a capacity for business and enlarged his 
experience so that, at the age of twenty, he was enabled to accept 
a better and more lucrative position, becoming general ticket agent 
for the Boston and Providence Railroad. In 1860 he removed to 
Providence, R. I., to fill the office of superintendent of transporta- 
tion for the same corporation. In the spring of 1864 he was ad- 
vanced to the position of assistant superintendent of the road, in 
Boston ; and in March, 1867, he became general superintendent, 
vol. lxii. 16 



216 Albert Alonzo Folsom, [July, 

which position he held up to the time the Boston and Providence 
Railroad was leased to the Old Colony Railroad, in 1888. Mr. 
Folsom was a very efficient officer, and introduced many valuable 
devices for increasing the comfort and safety of the travelling pub- 
lic, and the railroad owed much of its prosperity to his untiring 
efforts during his lengthy service. It is said that in 1869 he 
adopted and introduced the Miller platform buffer and hook, the 
Boston and Providence Railroad being the first to put that device to 
its full practical use. About the same year, recognizing the util- 
ity of the Westinghouse air-brake, he introduced and adopted this 
system, which proved a success. He was one of the founders of the 
Eastern Railroad Association, in 1867, a member of its executive 
committee in 1877, and its treasurer in 1879, which latter position 
he continuously held up to the time of his death. A Republican, 
though liberal in his views, he served on the board of Aldermen ' 
for the city of Boston in 1889-90, when it was more of an honor 
to be of that body. 

Mr. Folsom was a prominent member of many military organiz- 
ations. He was elected clerk of the American Rifles, in 1851, of 
which David R. Ward well was captain. In 1852 he was made a 
member of the National Guards, and in 1854 elected a Lieuten- 
ant of the Company. At this period the anti-slavery agitation became 
intense, especially in Boston, caused by the efforts to liberate the 
fugitive slave Anthony Burns. Lieutenant Folsom was in com- 
mand of the Guards in the Boston riot, where one man was killed 
and several severely hurt, and took active part in the protection of 
law. Soon after, Lieutenant Folsom resigned his commission, pre- 
ferring to be a private. On his removal to Providence, in 1860, he 
retired from the company. While living in Boston he was also a 
member of the " Tigers," otherwise called the " Boston Light In- 
fantry." In Providence he joined the Light Infantry of that city, 
and at his death was a member of the Providence Veteran Asso- 
ciation. In 1867, Mr. Folsom joined the Ancient and Honorable 
Artillery Company, and was chosen sergeant the following year. 
In 1870, he was made first lieutenant of the company, and its com- 
mander in 1876. He was always an active member of the compa- 
ny, and prominent in making up its library, being for many years 
on its library and museum committee, which directed the publication 
of the history of the company issued in 1891 in four large volumes. 
In 1888, Captain Folsom was a member of the committee having 
in charge the entertainment of the Honourable Artillery Company 
of London during its visit in Boston, and in 1896 he accompa- 
nied the Boston company on its visit to London, in the capacity of 
treasurer. His most valued services to the company, no doubt, 
have been his energetic labors and endeavors to perpetuate the 
memories of its early history. It was he who discovered the picture 
of Captain Keayne's house of 1637, which forms the frontispiece of 



1908.] Albert Alonzo Folsom. 217 

the third volume of the history of the company ; and to further en- 
rich the work, he spent much time and persistent effort in procur- 
ing nearly fifty portraits of past commanders, the oldest portrait 
dating back to 1651. 

Captain Folsom was a prominent Free Mason ; worshipful master 
of Columbian Lodge in 1876, 1877, and 1878 ; a member of Boston 
Commandery K. T. ; and in 1897 elected a member of the directors 
of the Grand Lodge A. F. and A. M. of Massachusetts, being 
further honored by re-election to the same office in 1899, and 
in 1900 appointed Deputy Grand Master of Massachusetts. He 
was also a member of the Universalist Club, the Virginia Historical 
Society, the Society of Colonial Wars, the Sons of the American 
Revolution, the Bostonian Society, the Brookline Historical Society, 
and the Brookline Thursday Club. His membership in the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society dated from February, 
1879. 

Interest in matters of history led him to take up the case of a 
French lieutenant of Count d'Estaing's fleet during the revolutionary 
war, who was assaulted in Boston and died a few days later. The 
officer was secretly buried at midnight, and an agreement was said 
to have been made between d'Estaing and the Colonial officers in 
which the latter agreed to erect a monument to the gallant lieutenant. 
This was never done, though there was correspondence between 
Washington and Gen. Heath in Boston ; and the general court of 
Massachusetts passed a resolve for the monument, and appointed a 
committee to see that the obligations were kept, but the monument 
was never built. As a result of Mr. Folsom's research, and the co- 
operation of Senator Prentiss Cummings, legislation is now pending 
for the erecting of the monument. 

It may be of interest here to narrate briefly two episodes which 
occurred in Boston in 1865 and 1868. Captain Folsom, at the re- 
quest of Orlando Tompkins, who was for many years proprietor 
of the Boston Theatre, arranged for the hurried journey of Edwin 
Booth to New York after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by 
Booth's brother. Booth had hastened to Mr. Tompkins's house to be 
away from the public gaze, and Captain Folsom secured a private car 
for the journey, and often described Mr. Booth's condition as piti- 
able in the extreme as he walked from the carriage to the car, taking 
no notice of his surroundings and seeming to be dazed by the ca- 
lamity that had fallen so suddenly upon the nation, and also upon 
his own family. 

In the summer of 1868, Captain Folsom met Hon. Edwin M. 
Stanton by appointment, and escorted him across the city to the 
residence of the Hon. Samuel Hooper, on Commonwealth Avenue, 
where he stayed some days, recovering from an illness which almost 
proved fatal. During his stay as Mr. Hooper's guest, the press 
made no mention of it, as it was not known that he was in the city. 



218 Descendants of Thomas Cooke. [July, 

After his recovery, Mr. Stanton went to Mr. Hooper's summer resi- 
dence, where he remained for some days. 

Captain Folsom was identified with the Second Universalist Church 
of Boston, which had for its pastor the Rev. Alonzo A. Miner, D.D. 

On April 11, 1861, he was married to Julia Elizabeth, daughter 
of Francis Berry and Mary (Cockayne) Winter of Boston. Their 
children are : Francis Berry Winter Folsom, Chandler Ransom Fol- 
som, Mrs. Mary Winter Dexter, and Mrs. Julia Elizabeth, wife of Dr. 
Charles S. Barrell of Boston. Captain Folsom was widely known, 
well read, a man of remarkable memory, and highly respected in the 
community. One of the best tributes paid to his character is to be 
found in the resolutions written by Henry W. Lamb, Esq., for the 
Brookline Thursday Club, a portion of which follows :— 

" Captain Folsom's duties in his long career brought him into contact 
with many eninent men and threw grave responsibilities frequently upon 
him. It was always a delight when he was induced to relate his ex- 
periences. He told them with a winning simplicity and confidence in 
the sympathy of his hearers who will long recall them with the pleasure 
that is one of the finest tributes to the memory of those whom we have 
liked and respected. His studies and researches were thorough and led 
him into many unbroken paths, He was happy when they were the means 
of procuring justice where it had not previously been given, but most 
of members of this Club will gratefully remember his pleasure when he 
was thus able to benefit his friends. 

Resolved. That the Brookline Thursday Club records its deep sorrow 
for the death of its loved and honored member, Albert Alonzo Folsom. 
Capt. Folsom's presence at the meetings of the Club was always gladly 
welcomed bv his fellow members, and he had endeared himself to them in 
an uncommon degree by his genial cordiality. Whenever they met or heard 
of him in his various activities, there or elsewhere, they recognized and 
admired in him the warm heart, the liberal mind, the straightforward 
sincerity and fidelity, which made him a valuable member of a wide com- 
munity. His memory will be fondly cherished." 

He died at his residence on Garrison Road, Brookline, Mass., De- 
cember 24, 1907, and was buried in the family lot at Forest Hills 
Cemetery.

RICHARD HUGHES OF GUILFORD, CONN., AND HIS 

DESCENDANTS. 

Compiled by Hon. Ralph D. Smyth, and communicated by Dr. Bernard C. Steiner. 

1. Richard 1 Hughes, the name also spelled Hewes, Hues, and Huse, 
was one of the earliest settlers of Guilford, as he drew one of the early 
lots of land. His name appears in the first list of planters for 1650, where 
it is spelt " Hues." He may have come from Dorchester, Mass., as one of 
his name was there in 1 639. At Guilford he was a member of the church, 
and appears to have been an esteemed and worthy citizen. At a particular 
Court held at Guilford, May 5, 1659, " The inventory of the estate of 



230 Descendants of Richard Hughes. [July, 

Richard Hughes, late of Guilford deceased, was presented by William 
Stone who had married the widow of the deceased, which was proved by 
said William Stone and his wife for the quantity, and by Robert Kitchel 
and Abraham Cruttenden, Sr., for the value — amount £96 . 4s . 7d." 

Administration of the estate was granted, May 23, 1659, to William 
Stone, upon promise and engagement to perform the payment of all debts 
and portions according to the court's appointment. 

At a particular court (Guilford), Aug. 21, 1659, William Stone appeared 
bringing in a parcel of goods sent as a token from friends in England to 
be distributed betwixt Widow Hughes and her eight children but not speci- 
fying how. The Court, with consent of William Stone, who married said 
widow, divided what part of them as was sent with such general order 
only, one third to said William Stone for the widow and the two children 
that are yet remaining with her — viz., Martha and Rebecca — and the other 
six parts between the other six children in equal proportions, appointing 
Mr. Kitchel and Abraham Cruttenden, Sr., to see the distribution made 
accordingly.

ond, May, 1659, William Stone, who died Nov., 1683.

ford, with the encouragement of the town, in 1669 and 1670. He 
inherited from his father a parcel of land containing 6 acres in the 
little plain. In 1684, he lived in Stratford, and married, about

254 Descendants of John Gage of Ipswich, [July, 



SOME DESCENDANTS OF JOHN GAGE OF IPSWICH, 

MASS. 

By Arthur E. Gage, A.M., of Woburn, Mass. 

1. John 1 Gage first appears as one of the signers to the covenant roll 
of the First Church in Boston, Aug. 27, 1630, and from his position on the 
list, which was headed by Gov. Winthrop, it may be inferred that he was 
of the number who came over from England in Winthrop's fleet. Some 
have claimed, on the authority of the late Horatio Somerby, that he was 
from Stoneham, in Suffolk, England, and was the second son of Sir John 
Gage, Bart., who married Penelope, widow of Sir George Trenchard ; but 
as that John Gage, the second son of Sir John and Penelope, married one 
Mary Baker,* and died in England, without issue, leaving a will dated July 
17, 1682, proved April 27, 1688, he could not have been our John Gage 
the immigrant. 

John 1 Gage remained in Boston until March, 1633, when he went, with 
John Winthrop, Jr., to begin a plantation at Agawam, afterwards called 
Ipswich. On Mar. 4, 1633, he was admitted a freeman. 

From the town he received a number of small parcels of land. He 
seems to have been a farmer, who varied his occupation by doing carpenter 
work. His most frequent employment was that of a lot layer, and for the 
settlement of the boundaries between Ipswich and the adjoining towns, and 
he was once chosen one of the seven men (selectmen). He is first called 
"Corporal " in a vote in the town records of Ipswich for the year 1639, 
and "Sergeant" in a vote of the town of Bradford, Apr. 18, 1670. Evi- 
dently he settled in that part of the town of Rowley which was first known 
as Merrimack Village, and afterwards as Bradford, some time prior to 1661. 

In a deposition of John Gage, taken Sept. 27, 1659, his age is stated to 
be fifty years ;| and in another, taken Mar. 25, 1662, his age is stated to 
be fifty-eight years. $ 

His first wife, and the mother of his children, was Amee ,§ who 

died about the middle of June, 1658. 

His second wife was Sarah, widow of Robert Keyes of Watertown and 
Newbury, whom he married Nov. 7, 1658, and who died in Newbury, July 
7, 1681, her estate being distributed among her three daughters, the wives 
of William Smith, John French, and Samuel Bus well. 

John Gage died Mar. 24, 1672-3, leaving a will, proved Mar. 25, 1673, 
in which he mentions his widow Sarah, sons Samuel, Daniel, Nathaniel, 
Jonathan, and Josiah, and a grandson (John, son of his deceased son Ben- 
jamin). It appears from his will that he divided his farm, with the excep- 
tion of his island in the Merrimack, among his sons before his death, and 

*The Visitation of Suffolk, by William Hervey, Vol. 2, p. 105. 

t Essex Court Papers, Dennisou vs. Symonds, Vol. 5, page 19. 

X Essex Court Papers, Shortwell vs. Smith, Vol. 7, page 89. 

§ The only hint we have as to who she may have been may be in the fact that her 
son Josiah, who, although twice married, died without issue, in his will after remem- 
bering his brothers and their children makes a bequest to his " cousin Whittaker." 
This cousin Whittaker was Mary Wilford, daughter of Gilbert Wilford, first the wife 
of John Corliss and then of William Whittaker. Gilbert Wilford was an attesting 
witness to the will of John Gage. The word cousin in this will, in a bequest to one 
Mchitable Gage, is undoubtedly used with the meaning of niece. 

Another hint of relationship may be afforded by the fact that in a deposition of one 
Alexander Sessions it appears that Henry Kingsbury's son called Sergt. John Ga°:e his 
" uncle." (Essex Court Papers, Vol. 14, page 46 ; Eegister, a?ite, Vol. 54, page 260.) 



1908.] Descendants of John Gage of Ipswich. 255 

had given each son about sixty acres of land, divided into first, second, 
third, and fourth division lots. As to his island, he provided that it should 
be divided equally among his sons, without naming them, and that his 
grandson should have an equal share with them. From the manner in 
which this island was afterwards conveyed, it appears that John Gage had 
only six sons, and did not have a son Thomas. 

The order in which the names of the children of John Gage are given 
below agrees with what is known as to the dates of their birth, and does 
not conflict with the order in which they are named in the wills of John, 
Samuel, and Josiah.

cease of his father.

EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARY OF REV. ROGER 
NEWTON, D.D., OF GREENFIELD, MASS. 

Communicated by Hon. Francis M. Thompson of Greenfield. 

A few years since there was rescued from a dumping barrel the 
greater part of a diary kept by Rev. Dr. Roger Newton, pastor for 
fifty-six years (1761-1816) of the First Church in Greenfield, 
Mass. It contains the list of church members, admissions, church 
meetings, discipline, marriages, baptisms, deaths, and a personal 
diary. Some breaks occur by missing pages. 

Judge Thompson published in his History of Greenfield (1904) 
the marriages and deaths, and some selections from the personal 
diary (vol. 1, pages 700-749), also a brief sketch of Dr. Newton 
(ibid, pages 461-462). 

Following are the Church members, admissions, and baptisms.

278 Daniel Angell Gleason. [July 5 



DANIEL ANGELL GLEASON, A.B., LL.B. 

On February 16, 1908, the useful and honorable career of Daniel 
Angell Gleason, son of John Fiske and Maria (Tourtelotte) Glea- 
son, drew to a peaceful close in his home at Medford, Massachusetts. 
He had built this home some forty years ago, selecting the spot 
somewhat at random. Some time later in life, his awakening in- 
terest in genealogical investigation led him to the interesting conclu- 
sion that he had unknowingly located his home on the identical farm 
owned by his wife's early ancestor, Stephen Hall, and hardly a mile 
distant from the spot occupied by the original Gleason ancestor, 
Thomas, on the western shores of Mystic Pond, then known as the 
Squa Sachem's reservation. 

Just when this original Thomas 1 came to America, and from what 
part of England, is still unknown. His name first appears among 
those taking the oath of allegiance in Watertown in 1652. From 
his several sons have descended numerous Gleasons of New England. 
John 2 Gleason early removed to Sudbury, Mass., and died about 
1690. Thomas 3 Gleason resided in Marlborough for a time, but in 
1718 took up land in Worcester, being among the early settlers of that 
town, where he died in 1755. When the New England forces 
were mustered into service for the Revolutionary war, two compa- 
nies came from Worcester to enter battle, and Isaac 4 Gleason was 
a member of one, and his son Jonathan 5 of the other. Isaac 4 died 
in Worcester in 1776, at the age of 52. Jonathan 5 married Mary 
Fiske, and died in 1826, at about the age of 82. John 6 Gleason 
was born in 1773, married Mary Simoncls, and died in middle life, 
leaving a farm, somewhat encumbered, to be carried on by his son 
John Fiske 7 the father of Daniel Angell 8 Gleason, as above stated. 
This John Fiske 7 Gleason, with the help of his three younger broth- 
ers, managed the farm and tended store in the winter, in the attempt 
to keep the family together, but after a two years' struggle gave 
up the undertaking, sold the farm, and apprenticed himself to a con- 
tractor and builder in the neighboring town of Shrewsbury . Before he 
was twenty-one he was put in charge of contracts, mostly of meeting- 
houses, receiving a share of the profits for his pay, and his indentures 
were cancelled. He conducted his business with great energy until 
he was fifty years of age, when his health became precarious and he 
retired from active work with a modest competency. He was a man 
with the distinctive characteristics of so many of our New England 
men of the descent and education which was common in the in- 
terior of Massachusetts, at least during the earlier part of the last 
century — a man of very positive convictions, an early member of 
the Liberty party, although being by inheritance a Democrat, or 
Republican as the party was called in the early days of the century. 




F> 



1908.] Daniel Angell Gleason. 279 

Pie afterwards became a strong Free-Soiler, and later a Republican 
of the modern name. He took an active part in municipal affairs 
of the city of Worcester, was councilman and alderman, represented 
the town for two years in the legislature, and was a member of the 
legislature which elected Charles Sumner to the United States senate 
for his first term. 

His wife, Maria Tourtelotte, was of French Huguenot extraction, 
descended from Abraham and Marie (Bernon) Tourtelotte, two 
Huguenot refugees who came to this country in 1688, and married 
in Roxbury in 1692. 

For five years after the marriage of Marie Bernon to Abraham 
Tourtelotte, the young couple lived in Roxbury, then they removed 
with the Bernon family to Newport, R. I. Here they resided until, 
according to family tradition, Abraham and his son Gabriel were 
lost at sea by the wrecking of their vessel. The widow continued 
in the family of Gabriel Bernon until her younger son, Abraham, 
had grown up and taken a wife and established a home in Glouces- 
ter, R. I. To this home the widow removed, and resided there 
until her death. 

From her son Abraham, the happy father of twelve children, the 
numerous Tourtelottes in the country trace their ancestry. One 
of his sons, Jonathan, married a daughter of Roger Williams. 
Another son, Jesse, married Lydia Angell, and had, among others, 
Daniel, the father of Maria Tourtelotte, and grandfather of Daniel 
Angell Gleason. 

Mr. Gleason was born in Worcester, May 9, 1836, attended the 
public schools in Worcester, fitted for college in the Worcester 
High School, and entered Yale College as freshman in the fall of 
1852. In the winter term of 1852-3 he left Yale and entered 
Harvard, and was graduated in regular course with the class of 1856. 

While in college he taught school during the winter, as was very 
frequently the custom in those days, commencing school after Thanks- 
giving and finishing at the end of the winter vacation. He taught 
in this way in Princeton in the winter of 1853-4, and in Charlton 
in the winter of 1854-5. 

At the class election just preceding graduation, in 1856, he was 
elected a member of the class committee, an honor which kept him 
closely in touch with all classmates in after years, so that his class 
loyalty amounted almost to an enthusiasm. In 1901 he was chosen 
class secretary. 

On leaving college he taught for three years a family school in 
Meadville, Crawford County, Pa., reading law during the latter 
two years, in the office of Hon. Gaylord Church, and was admitted 
to the bar of Crawford County, on examination, in the summer of 
1859, returning to Harvard in the fall of that year to enter the Law 
School, and was graduated the next year, 1860, receiving the de- 
gree of LL.B. The next year he spent as a student in the office 
of Chandler and Shattuck in Boston, and was admitted to the Bar of 
vol. lxii. 20 



280 Daniel Angell Gleason. [July, 

Suffolk County in the spring of 1861. During the year 1860 he 
assisted Prof. Washburn in the preparation of his works on Real 
Property and Easements, and took entire editorial charge of an 
edition of Bouvier's Law Dictionary, which was then in preparation. 
In 1861 and 1862 he supervised an edition of Bouvier's Institutes, 
and took charge of an edition of Phillips on Insurance. 

In the fall of 1862 he was appointed as legal assistant to the 
Attorney General of Massachusetts, Hon. D wight Foster, and con- 
tinued this connection through the year 1863. The Legislature of 
1864 made a considerable change in the manner of assessing and 
collecting taxes upon Massachusetts corporations, by the enactment 
of the corporation tax law, and Mr. Gleason, as Tax Commissioner 
and Commissioner of Corporations, was charged with the execution 
of the law. He organized the department, prepared all schedules 
and forms of returns, and arranged the methods of doing the work, 
which still continue in use at the present time. The law was found 
to require material modifications in form and in substance, which 
was done at the recommendation of the judiciary committee for the 
year 1865, the work being largely under the direction of John 
Wells, late of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, Hon. Francis E. 
Parker, and Hon. Darwin E. Ware. Mr. Gleason assisted materially 
in this work, and furnished the suggestions for amendment in the ad- 
ministrative provisions of the law, which experience had determined 
to be necessary. 

Passage of the National Bank Act, and the consequent conversion 
of State Banks into National Banks, required considerable modifi- 
cation of statutory provisions, and the years from 1865 to 1872 were 
marked by contests between the banking interests in the State and 
municipalities, which finally resulted in the establishment of the 
present system of taxing National banks. The duties of the Tax- 
Commissioner were increased by requiring him to make the equali- 
zation of municipal valuations once in three years, as a basis for the 
assessment of a direct state tax upon the towns and cities ; and the 
office also came to be regarded as a place for the exchange of views 
and knowledge with the local assessors, to the advantage of the de- 
partment, the assessors and the public. 

In 1872 complaints of the defects of the general acts regulating 
business corporations came to a climax, and by direction of the 
judiciary committee of that year, Mr. Gleason proposed the plan 
and drafted the provisions of the general corporation law for the for- 
mation of manufacturing and business corporations, which became 
a law that year and have continued with extensions, but with slight 
modifications, until the present time. 

In 1881 Mr. Gleason became Treasurer and Receiver General of 
the Commonwealth, which office he held for five successive years, 
the statutory limit of service to which any one person can be elected. 
During his term of service, the state adopted the policy of disposing 



1908.] Smith Family of Walpoh, Mass. 281 

of its interests in the three railroad systems, which it had acquired 
originally to assist in developing the Commonwealth, and the Treas- 
urer did work of great value in aiding this movement and in drawing 
some of the principal acts which were passed to effect the purpose. 
Care of the development of the sinking funds proved an interesting 
and congenial work. 

In January, 1886, his term as State Treasurer having expired, 
he resumed the practise of law, giving particular attention to mat- 
ters of tax and corporation law. 

In the early summer of 1887 he was chosen treasurer of the 
Fitchburg Railroad Company, an office which he continued to fill 
up to the time of his death. 

Mr. Gleason was married, January 7, 1863, in Roxbury, to Annie 
Louisa, daughter of Richard and Mary (Henry) Hall, and from 
that time on took up his residence in Medford, Mass., where his five 
children were born. 

He soon became active in town affairs ; was for twenty-one years 
a member of the school committee, the last eighteen of which he 
was chairman of the Board ; took a prominent part in organizing 
the Savings Bank, being elected at its first meeting a member of the 
Board of Trustees and of the Investment Committee, and was at 
the time of his death President of the Bank. For twenty-two years 
he was on the Board of Water Commissioners, nineteen years as its 
chairman ; and has always, in fact, lived up to his conviction that 
it is the duty of every American citizen to devote a portion of his 
time and capacity to the public service. 

In later years he became much interested in genealogical inquiries, 
and spent much time in reseach extending to matters of local history. 
He likewise found an absorbing interest in gathering data for a 
history of his family, though with no serious intention of publishing, 
yet it is to be hoped that so much painstaking labor may not be lost 
and that in the near future arrangements may be made, with other 
workers along the same lines, whereby the fruits of the labor he 
delighted in may see the day. He was elected a resident member 
of this Society in 1896. 



THE SMITH FAMILY OF WALPOLE, MASS. 

By Mrs. Anna M. Pickford, of Newton Center, Mass. 

Descendants of Lieut. James Smith of Walpole have long tried 
to find his ancestry, and queries concerning it have appeared in the 
Register. 

The following addition to the account of Christopher Smith and 
his descendants, in Austin's Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, 
pages 377-379, gives the line of the Smiths of Walpole.

between Mar. 29, 1706, and Mar. 29, 1707, married, July 25, 1728, 
at Walpole, Hannah, born at Walpole, Sept. 21, 1709, died there 
July 12, 1759, daughter of Capt. John and Hannah (Bullard) Boy- 
den. He died Mar. 29, 1755, and is buried in the old cemetery on 
Kendall St., Walpole, where his gravestone reads : " In memory of 
Mr. James Smith who died March 29, 1755 in y e 49 th year of his 
age " (Dedham Hist. Register, vol. 13, p. 34). 

Jeremiah 5 Smith of Walpole, bloomer, was appointed administra- 
tor of the estate of his father, James Smith late of Walpole, deceased, 
Apr. 25, 1755 (Suffolk Co. Probate, vol. 50, p. 112), and the in- 
ventory mentions kt Some goods of his grandfather's estate unsettled." 

Lieut. James 4 Smith was appointed administrator of the estate of 
his brother Jeremiah 4 Smith of Walpole, in 1726 (Suffolk Co. Pro- 
bate, vol. 26, p. 16), and in the account it is stated that "Whereas 
the estate of Jeremiah Smith, late of Walpole, deceased, a Batche- 
lour, intestate, cannot be divided among his brothers and sisters 
without prejudice to the estate, James Smith, eldest brother of the 
deceased, accepting the estate, is to pay unto his brothers and sisters 
their ratable parts. The Judge of Probate assigns all housing and 
lands unto his eldest brother, James Smith, he to pay his brothers 
and sisters, namely Christopher Smith, Anphillis Jenks and Eliza- 
beth Smith £20 ]5s apice before June 8, 1728." 

Lieut. James Smith's name is signed to a petition to be set off 
from the town of Stoughton, to Walpole, as the petitioners were 
obliged to travel ten miles to attend the annual meeting in Stough- 
ton, and only one or two miles to Walpole (Mass. Archives, vol. 
116, pp. 210-11). 

Capt. John Boyden, in his will of Oct. 28, 1754, probated Dec. 
31 following, mentions " My well beloved daughter Hannah Smith 
(Suffolk Co. Probate, vol. 58, p. 381).

LIST OF LOYALISTS FROM GEORGIA WHO SETTLED 

IN JAMAICA. 

Transcribed by Rev. John Bourne Ellis, M.A., of Kingston, Jamaica, and communi- 
cated by Rev. Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton, D.C.L., of New York. 

Rev. Mr. Ellis wrote, in 1892, in a letter accompanying the list : 
"I find that in 1783 the House of Assembly made provision for 
the settlement in St. Elizabeth's Parish of the families of a number 
of loyalists who arrived from Georgia, accompanied by about 5,000 
slaves. I enclose a list of names of the persons who thus settled. 

• • • Most of the names — even the uncommon ones such 
as Munds — are familiar in Jamaica. • • • After disestablish- 
ment in 1870, the state took possession of the old church Registers, 
which are now kept by the registrar general."

302 Proceedings of the N. E. Hist. Gen. Society. [July, 



PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 

GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY. 

By Geo. A. Gordon, A.M., Recording Secretary. 

Boston, Massachusetts, 4 March, 1908. The New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society held a stated meeting, agreeable to the By-laws, at half-past two 
o'clock this afternoon, in Marshall P. Wilder hall, 18 Somerset street, and was 
called to order by the Recording Secretary, who announced the absence of the 
President and inquired the presence of a Vice-President. No one responding, 
a nomination from the floor was invited, by which Charles Sidney Ensign, 
LL.B., of Newton, was elected Chairman pro tempore. Mr. Ensign accepted 
and presided. 

The Chairman introduced James Henry Stark, Esq., of Dorchester, who read 
a valuable paper on " The Loyalists of Massachusetts Bay, whose memories are 
forgotten by an empire they served so well." It received the applause of the 
meeting, and, on motion, thanks were voted with a request for the deposit of a 
copy of the paper in the archives of the Society. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Historian, and the Council, severally, pre- 
sented reports, which were received, read, accepted and ordered on file. 

Ten resident and two corresponding members were elected. 

The meeting then voted to dissolve, and the chair so proclaimed. 

1 April. A stated meeting was held to-day at the usual time and place, the 
President in the chair, who introduced Barrett Wendell, A.B., of Boston, Pro- 
fessor of English in Harvard University, who delivered a remarkably interest- 
ing, discriminating and instructive discourse on Types of New England Character, 
which was well received by the largest audience, thus far, of the present year. 
It was heartily applauded, and discussed by several members, at the close of 
which a vote of thanks was passed, and a request made that a copy of the ad- 
dress be deposited in the archives of the Society. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Librarian, and the Historian, severally, 
presented reports which were received, read, accepted and ordered on file. 

Nine resident members were elected. 

The meeting then voted to dissolve, and the President so proclaimed. 

6 May. A stated meeting was held to-day, at the usual time and place, the 
President in the Chair, who introduced Frank B. Sanborn, A.B., of Concord, 
who read a comprehensive paper on Kansas and Emancipation. It was largely 
reminiscent, and abundant in historical facts and description of individuals of 
whom Mr. Sanborn had personal knowledge. A large audience applauded en- 
thusiastically. On motion, a vote of thanks was unanimously passed, with a 
request for a copy of the paper for preservation in the archives of the Society. 

The Corresponding Secretary, the Librarian, and the Council, severally, pre- 
sented reports, which were received, read, accepted, and ordered on file. 

No further business being brought before the meeting it was, on motion, 
Voted to dissolve the meeting. The Chair proclaimed the meeting dissolved. 



NOTES. 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain 
genealogists and publishers have used the name of the Society 
in connection with their own enterprises, the Society again de- 
sires to state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this 
country or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any 
publications other than those which it issues over its own name 
at 18 Somerset Street, Boston. 



1908.] Notes. 303 

Chatham, Mass., Gravestone Inscriptions {ante, page 203).— Between the 
record of Stephen Smith and that of Stephen Rider should be inserted the f ol 
lowing : 

11 Here Lies buried Mrs. Mercy Doane the wife of Mr. Joseph Doane Ju r She 
Dec d with the Small pox Jany. ye lGth 1766. in ye 23 rd year of her age." 

And in the line following the record of Mr. Stephen Rider, the words " from 
the separated stone" should read " from a stone." 
New York City. James W. Hawes. 

Clay. — This account of the family of Joseph 1 Clay of Guilford, Conn., com- 
piled by the late Hon. Ralph D. Smyth, may be of interest : 

At a town meeting in Guilford the 20th of March, 1670-71, liberty was granted 
to Joseph Clay to seek some accommodation suitable to himself to be viewed 
by some men. At a town meeting Aug. 2, 1673, he was appointed one of the 
surveyors. His home-lot, granted by the town, was " situate lying and being 
in the town of Guilford containing one acre and bounded Northerly on the 
Highway, Westerly on the land of Daniel Evarts, Southerly partly against the 
land of Andrew Ward and part of the land George Hiland, Easterly on Com- 
mon land." 
1. Joseph 1 Clay died Nov. 30, 1695. He married, Apr. 18, 1670, Mary Love, 
or Low, who died Dec. 7, 1692. 
Children : 
i. Mary, 2 b. Jan. 10, 1670-1 ; m. Nicholas Masson of Saybrook. 
ii. Sarah, b. Mch. 5, 1674; d. Apr. 5, 1717; m. Mch. 13, 1701, John Chitten- 
den, who d. Feb. 1710. 
iii. Hannah, b. Aug. 3, 1677; d. young, 
iv. Elizabeth, b. Aug. 3, 1677; d. young. 
Baltimore, Md. Bernard C. Steiner. 



Boreman. — Mr. Henry E. Waters has called attention to the following entry 
in the " Registers of St. Helen's, Bishopgate, London, 1575-1837," p. 132 : 

1630 Aug. 17 Thomas Bourman, batcheler and Cordwayner of London, and 
Margarett Offing, maiden ; by bands. 

Thomas 1 Boreman of Ipswich, 1635, had a wife Margaret; and his son Thomas 2 
had a son Offin. The coincidence of names would seem to identify Thomas 
Bourman of London with Thomas Boreman of Ipswich, and suggests their 
being the same person. Committee on English Research. 



Thomson.— Through the kindness of Mr. Charles Eliot Goodspeed the Regis- 
ter is enabled to print a memorandum signed by Edmund Thomson of Salem, 
giving the date of his marriage and dates of birth of his children. Heretofore the 
dates of baptism of his son Thomas and daughter Anna were the only ones 
known, and the additional information furnished by the memorandum increases 
its value. Erom it we learn that he had four, not three, children born in Eng- 
land. 

Edmund Thomson was a son of John Thomson of Holkham, Norfolk, Eng- 
land, and his wife Anne, daughter of John Hastings of the same place. He 
married Martha, daughter of John Eiske (father of John Fiske of Wenham) 
and his wife Anne Lantersee. He came from the neighborhood of Framling- 
ham, Suffolk; was of Salem, 1637, a proprietor, and was there admitted to the 
church Dec. 29, 1639. He and his wife were witnesses in court, 1643, and the 
same year he was a proprietor at Wenham. Upon his return to England he 
settled at Yarmouth. He is said to have been a sea-captain, and to have served 
the States of Holland after the death of Charles I. The names of three of his 
four children born in England are John, Esther, and again John. (See Hunter's 
Suffolk Emigrants in 3 Mass. Hist. Soc. Collections, x, 159 ; Savage's Genea- 
logical Dictionary; Pope's Pioneers.) 

Sine I went to New Eingland to dwell is the 10 of march 1636 ; 56.* 

The clay and year we war marryeel is the ninth day of auguftl 
Edmund Thomfon and martha flfke which is yoke fellows [ 
till death 1637 J 

* Perhaps intended to be 1635-6.

Edward and John Collins and their Descendants. — In the article bear- 
ing this title and printed in the Register, vol. 61, page 281, there are some 
errors which should not be allowed to pass uncorrected. 

iv. Sibyl 2 , daughter of Deacon Edward 1 Collins, married Rev. John Whiting, 
and died in June, 1672. The letter of John Winthrop to his son Wait, dated 
" Hartford June : 4 : 1672," in which he writes about the death of Mr. Whiting, 
is incorrectly printed in the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections, series 
5, volume 8, page 144. An examination of the original letter shows that the 
word was Mrs. and not Mr. It was John Whiting's second wife, Phebe, who 
married Rev. John Russel, of Hadley. 

3. Samuel 2 Collins (Dea. Edward 1 ) married Mary, daughter of Reynold 
Marvin, of Lyme, Conn., then a part of Saybrook. 

Marvin, in his will dated May 23, 1662, gave his daughter " Mare" household 
goods, "my wives wearing Cloths and linnen," cattle, etc. (Hartford County 
Court Records, vol. 3, reverse end page 1.) 

Sept. 2, 1669, " Mr. Samuel Collins Plntf : contra Ens: W m : Waller as exe- 
cutor to Mr. Reinold Maruin Deceased Defn't In an action of the case for an 
acco* : of Moueables goods & cattell of the sd Reinold Maruin which by will 
belongs to the sayd Collins his wife with damage to the value of one Hundred 
& fifty pownds : the def nt appeared not being called." (Hartford County Court 
Records, vol. 3, page 89.) 
Mary, widow of Samuel Collins, died March, not May, 5, 1713-14. 
The following should be added concerning the children of Samuel and Mary 
(Marvin) Collins : 

ii. Martha, 3 b. Mar. 3, 1666; m. Jan. 8, 1689-90, William Harris. 

iv. Sibilla, b. Feb. 24, 1669-70, bapt. Feb. 27, 1669-70; m. (1) Isaac Rice 

of Sudbury, Mass. ; m. (2) George Reecl of Woburn, Mass. 
v. Mary, b. June 16, 1672 ; m. Richard Moore of Needham and Oxford, Mass. 
Their son Abijah was a physician in Middletown, where he d. Dec. 18, 
1759. Abijah's eldest son was named Reynold Marvin Moore. 
vi. Abigail, b. June 2, 1673; m. July 9, 1702, William Ward of Middletown. 
July 15, 1723, William Ward, Senior, and wife Abigail for themselves and he 
as attorney for Isaac Rice and wife Sibilla of Sudbury and Richard Moore and 
wife Mary of Oxford conveyed, as heirs of Samuel Collins deceased of Middle- 
town, all their interest in certain lands in Middletown. (Middletown Land 
Records, vol. 4, page 192.) 

August 14, 1739, George Reed and wife Sibilla of Woburn conveyed to Abijah 
Moore, physician of Middletown, land in the latter town which fell to her as an 
heir of her father Samuel Collins deceased of Middletown. (Middletown Land 
Records, vol. 6, page 402.) 



1908.] Notes. 305 

July 17, 1718, William Harris and wife Martha, of Micklletown, conveyed to 
11 their son Jonathan Yemans & to their Daughter Sibbil his wife" land which 
descended to said William and Martha as part of her portion of the estate of 
her father Ensign Samuel Collins deceased, of Middletown. (Middletown Land 
Records, vol. 4, page 28.) 

5. Samuel 3 Collins, Jr. (Samuel, 2 Edward 1 ) was not the Samuel Collins, of 
Wethersfield, with wife Martha, as stated in Mr. Smyth's article. On Middletown 
Land Records, vol. 1, leaf 72, is entered a conveyance dated Dec. 25, 1690, from 
Samuel Collins of " Midletowne " ..." to my louing & dutieful son Samuel 
Collins " of lands in Middletown. "I do give and bequeath as aboue all the 
forementionecl percell of land" ..." unto my son Samuell and to the heirs of 
his bodie from generation to generation foreuer " . . . " with the Limitations 
following that is to say, if my son shall dye before marriage and myselfe shall 
suruiue then this above mentioned Land to return to myself." 

Thus far no record has been discovered of the marriage of Samuel, Jr. I 
suspect that it was his widow Susannah, date of birth and parentage unknown, 
who married, March 18, 1702-3, John Harris, of Middletown. She died Feb. 
10, 1747-48, aged 80. 

William Roberts and his wife Susannah, of Middletown, sold, Jan. 19, 1716- 
17, to Jonathan Yemans and his wife Sibbel, of the same town, land in Middle- 
town "which Lottment of land clecends to s d William Robburts & Susannah his 
wife she being the only childe & heiris to Samuel Collins, Juu r deceased to whom 
the s d lotment of Land was Conveyed by deed of Gifft from his father Ensigne 
Sam 11 Collins sometime of afores d Midletown dec d . . . that Deed of Gift there 
is an Intailment by the s d Ensigne Sam 11 Collins to his s d son Sam 11 and to his 
heirs of his body from generation to generation & there is one Clause more in 
s d Deed if the s d Samm 11 dye without heirs then the Land to Return to the f amaly 
of the s d Ensigne Collins suruiueing & the s d Sibbil being Daughter to Martha 
the Daughter of the s d Ensigne Sam 11 Collins." (Middletown Land Records, 
vol. 4, page 27.) 

Samuel 8 Collins, Jr., had the following child : 

Susannah, b. 1694: m. Dec. 1, 1714, William Roberts of Middletown. 
Susannah, aged 87, widow of William Roberts, was buried Nov. 12, 
1781. Their fourth child was named Collins Samuel Boberts. 

4. Rev. Nathaniel Collins (Dea. Edward 1 ) had children : 

i. Mary 3 , b. May 11, 1666; m. John Hamlin, who d. Jan. 2, 1732-33; d. 
May 5, 1722. 

ii. John, b. Jan. 31, 1667-8; m. Marv Dixwell. 

iii. Susannah, b. Nov. 26, 1669; m. William Hamlin; d. Feb. 24, 1721-22. 

iv. Sibbil, b. Aug. 20, 1672; d. young. 

v. Martha, b. Dec. 26, 1674 ; d. June, 1748 ; m. Dec. 15, 1705, Thomas 
Hurlbut, who d. Feb., 1752. 

vi. Nathaniel, b. June 13, 1677; minister at Enfield, Conn. 

vii. Abigail, b. July 13, 1681; d. Feb. 6, 1758; m. Dec. 27, 1706, Samuel 
Wolcott of Wethersfield. The inscription on her gravestone says : 
" Daughter of y e Rev'd Mr Nathaniel Collins of Middletown." (See 
also Middletown Land Records, vol. 4, page 198.)

Smith, Mead. — Watertown First Book of Records, in Births, Marriages and 
Deaths, page 26, says that John Smith married, April 19, 1664, Mary Been ; and 
on page 27, that John Smith married, April 19, 1665, Mary Beech. This is the 
John Smith to whom Bond in his Genealogies of Watertown gives Mary Beers 
as wife. 

John and Mary (Beach) Smith had a daughter Hannah, born Dec. 27, 1671; 
and that she married Thomas Mead, of Cambridge Farms and Lexington, is 
shown in Middlesex Co. Deeds, vol. 17, page 448, when John Smith of Water- 
town, for 200 pounds paid by Thomas Mead of Lexington and John Pierce of 
Watertown, sells them his mansion house and thirty acres of land in Watertown. 
June 24, 1715, John Pierce and Thomas Mead obliged themselves to care for 
their father-in-law, the grantor,* John Smith, in sickness and health, as he " is

now old and feeble;" on his death, they to divide his estate equally among his 
surviving children. " Whereas the said John Smith had given a deed to his son 
Samuel Smith on June 13, 1715, said deed is fraudulent as John Smith did not 
know what he was doing." 

Thomas Mead administered the estate of John Smith of Watertown, Sept. 
20, 1717-18 (Middlesex Co. Probate, File 14771). The heirs giving receipts 
were : John Applin in behalf of his wife, John Smith, Joshua Warren in behalf 
of his wife, Samuel Smith to his brother Thomas Mead, John Pierce in his 
father John Smith's estate, John Winter in his father John Smith's estate in be- 
half of his wife, Joseph Locke for his wife. 

As Thomas Mead's wife Hannah signed his deeds up to 1760, these, together 
with the above extracts, show that the wife "Hasaniah" given in the History 
of Lexington is a mistake. 

Watertown First and Second Books, on page 9, gives : John, son of Thomas 
and Mary Smith, was born 10. 10. 1641; Mary, daughter of Richard and Mary 
Beech, was born 11. 10. 1641. 

Thomas, son of Israel and Mary (Hall) Mead, was born about 1670, and was 
mentioned in his father's will of April 2, 1713. 

Woburn Marriages, page 182, shows that Thomas Mead married, Jan. 31, 1695, 
Hannah Smith of Cambridge. Emily Wilder Leavitt. 



Historical Intelligence. 

Fuller. — A genealogy of descendants of Edward Fuller, passenger on the 
Mayflower, will be published during the current year if sufficient encourage- 
ment is received from subscribers. The compiler has had the privilege of taking 
notes from the manuscripts of Newton Fuller, Prof. Homer W. Brainard and 
Fred A. Fuller, and has made quest for other information concerning the des- 
cendants of Edward Fuller. 

Besides mention of some 2000 descendants bearing the name of Fuller, and 
many of other names, the book will contain copies of wills of Robert Fuller of 
Redenhall Parish in Harleston, Co. Norfolk, England, of Samuel 2 of Barnstable, 
Mass., and of John 3 (Little John) of Barnstable, and East Hacldam, Conn., and 
will be illustrated with views of Redenhall Church, some old homes in America, 
portraits of Fuller genealogists and descendants, biographical sketches of Judge 
Melville W. Fuller and others. 

For terms of subscription, address William H. Fuller, Palmer, Mass. 



Park-Parke. — The History of the Parke Families of Massachusetts is about 
ready for publication. Should a sufficient number of subscriptions be received, 
it will be published under the same terms, and will be about the same general 
style and size, as the " Parke Families of Connecticut," issued in 1906. 

The object of the book is to include descendants of all emigrants of these 
names, iucluding Parks, who settled in Massachusetts previous to 1800. Many 
descendants of the pioneers emigrated to Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and 
New York, previous to and about the time of the Revolution. Since then they 
have spread through nearly every state in the Union. 

For particulars of subscription, address F. S. Parks, 2104 H St., N. W., Wash- 
ington, D. C. 



Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, 
graduation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and 
dates of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in 
full if possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known. 

Holton. — Fred J. Holton, Brigham City, Utah, is compiling a Holton genea- 
logy, and will be glad to correspond with all persons interested in the family. 

Woodruff.— Maj. Charles E. Woodruff, U. S. A., care War Department, Wash- 
ington, D. C, is compiling a genealogy of the descendants of Matthew Wood- 
ruff of Farmington, Conn., and John Woodruff of Southampton, L. I., N. Y., 
and desires records of descendants.

This is the second volume of the Indian Captivities Series, and is a reprint of

with notes by Mellen Chamberlain. In two volumes. Boston. Printed for 
the Massachusetts Historical Society, 1908. 8vo. Vol. I. pp. 668. Vol. II. 
pp. 793. Illus. 

Chelsea's history, which was first printed in the local newspapers, at last ap- 
pears in a new edition, most fortunately, as the recent conflagration in that city 
reduces the numbers of the early publication to a very few copies. A compre- 
hensive memoir of the author appears in the first volume, and his portrait serves 
as the frontispiece. The appendixes are an unusual feature of this work, the 
most important being at the end of the second volume and containing the bap- 
tisms, marriages, and deaths in the Church Records at Rumney Marsh, and the 
inscriptions in the Rumney Marsh Burying Ground. The beautiful heliotype 
illustrations are well selected and the analytical index was splendidly made.

marked to show the old homesteads. There are views of the houses built be- 
fore the Revolution, as well as descriptions of them, and much valuable and 
interesting information is preserved which will be greatly appreciated by future 
generations. The author has done his work well, and this small record of the 
men of the Dover Parish, which is indexed, is very desirable.

Exact copies of the inscriptions in these three cemeteries, with many valu- 
able notes, are arranged in alphabetical order. Mr. Rice gives a preface which 
reviews most interestingly the history of the beginnings of the printing of town 
records in Massachusetts. The illustrations are reproductions of photographs 
taken by Mr. Rice. An index closes the volume, which is well printed on good 
paper. 

The First Four Meeting Houses of Milton, Mass., covering a period of two and a 
half centuries. [By] John A. Tucker. 1908. folio pp.5. Facsimiles. 

To those interested in the church architecture of early New England many 
items in this pamphlet will be interesting and useful. Of the twelve places of 
worship built in Milton since its first settlement, four were owned by the town, 
and eight by parishes. The facsimiles are excellent, that of the interior of the 
fourth meeting house giving the names of the pew holders.

Eleven folio volumes of Spanish and French documents relating to the earliest 
settlements in that tract of land called the " Louisiana Purchase" have been 
transferred from the New Madrid Court House to the Missouri Historical So- 
ciety. It is sincerely hoped that the Society will see fit to print these valuable 
papers, which contain priceless records of great historical interest. The 
journal of Gov. Stephen Watts Kearny kept during the Yellowstone Expedi- 
tion of 1820, a letter of instruction from Baron Carondelet to Lt.-Col. Don 
Carlos Howard written in 1796, and other interesting articles are to be found

The University Library, Princeton, N. J. 8vo. pp. 295. Illus. 

Princeton as the seat of the Continental Congress after it left Philadelphia 
never received detailed consideration until this volume appeared. The Ave 
months of residence in this genial village town presents a unique record of 
congressional life influenced by its academic neighbors. Many documents have 
been consulted to furnish a full account of the debates which took place here, 
which supplements considerably the record published in the Journal of Con- 
gress. The informal side of the life has been drawn largely from hitherto un- 
published sources, and many quaint old prints, rare broadsides and uncommon 
portraits add to the value and interest of this book, which is indexed, clearly 
printed on good paper, and excellently bound.

History of the First Church in Roxbury, 3Iassachusetts, 1630-1904. By Walter

Illustrated. Boston. W. A. Butterfleld, 59 Broinfield Street. 1908. 8vo. 
pp. 428. Illus. 

Painstaking and careful efforts on the part of the writer have borne well-mer- 
ited and satisfactory results in this splendid, comprehensive history of the First 
Church in Roxbury. Each of the five meeting-houses has been given a chapter, 
and many old plans and ancient views are reproduced to illustrate the changes. 
The lists of the members connected with each meeting-house are descriptive, 
and will prove a boon to genealogists. Also the accounts of the lives of the 
pastors, teachers, elders, and deacons are given in such a comprehensive, ac- 
curate manner that this volume will prove an authority for reference. Nothing 
has been omitted, even the horse-sheds are noticed. The work of the Stan- 
hope Press is admirable iu every particular, but the finely selected binding de- 
serves special mention. An excellent index closes a volume that is a credit to 
its compiler and of great usefulness to the student.

The baptisms, marriages, burials, and admissions of the Second Parish of 
Stoughton, later the First Parish of Sharon, are here printed as they stand in 
the church records, spelling, punctuation and abbreviations being carefully re-

serves as a frontispiece. There is a complete index which greatly increases 
the usefulness of this valuable publication. It is to be hoped that the Histori-

DAVID T IENRY BROWN, A.B. 

By Frank Smith, Esq. 

David Henry Brown died at his home in West Medford, Mass- 
achusetts, on Friday morning, February 21, 1908. He was the 
son of Joseph and Elvira (Howard) Brown, and was born on the 
ancestral farm at Raymond, New Hampshire, August 17, 1836, in 
a home where he was taught to cherish the best traditions of New 
England life. 

He was descended in the seventh generation from John Brown, 
who came from England with his wife Sarah, and who was one of 
the founders, in 1638, of Hampton, New Hampshire. He was a 
lineal descendant also of the Rev. Stephen Bachelder, Thomas Web- 
ster, Hon. Samuel Dalton, and other founders of Hampton ; Hon. 
John Gilman of Exeter, Capt. John Locke, Capt. Daniel Ladd, 
and Joseph Blake. 

On his maternal side he was descended from Samuel Howard, 
one of the early settlers of Charlestown and Maiden, Massachusetts ; 
Governor Thomas Hinckley of the Plymouth Colony ; Rev. Wil- 
liam Walton, one of the founders of Marblehead ; Rev. John Mayo, 
the first minister of the Second Church in Boston ; William Bassett 
and Robert Hicks, who came in 1621 in the Fortune, which was 
the second ship to arrive at Plymouth ; Quartermaster John Smith 
and Thomas Swift of Dorchester ; Elder John Whipple of Ipswich ; 
Rev. Nathaniel Stone of Harwich ; as well as from many other 
founders of New England. 

Mr. Brown obtained his early education in the schools of his na- 
tive town and at Hampton Academy, Hampton, New Hampshire. 
He fitted for college at Phillips Academy, Andover, entered Dart- 
mouth College in 1857, and was graduated in the class of 1861. 
He was a classmate of Rev. Dr. William Jewett Tucker, now 
president of that College. During his college days, as well as while 
preparing for college, he taught winter schools in his native village 
and other towns, and for three successive winters the Middle Street 
school in Braintree, Massachusetts. After leaving college he was 
vol. lxii. 22 



316 David Henry Brown. [Oct. 

principal of the high school in South Abington, Massachusetts , now 
Whitman, for a year, and principal of the high school in Stoneham, 
Massachusetts, for the year ending March, 1864. He always re- 
tained a deep interest in these towns, which were the scenes of his 
early labors, and in the welfare of the pupils whom he instructed. 
He is remembered as a capable teacher, thorough in his methods 
and broad in his views. 

In 1864 he obtained a position as clerk in the United States 
Quartermaster's Department at Nashville, Tennessee, in the office 
of Gen. J. L. Donaldson, Senior and Supervising Q. M., Dept. of 
the Cumberland, and later in the office of Col. John C. Crane, Q. 
M. in charge of the U. S. Military Railroad, Military Division of 
the Mississippi. He was in Nashville during the important and de- 
cisive battles between the armies of Hood and Thomas, Dec. 15 and 
16, 1864, and resigned in Feb. 1865, after nearly a year in the ser- 
vice. He had associated with him for a time in the Quartermaster's 
Department his younger brother James William Brown, a senior in 
Dartmouth College, who contracted typhoid fever and died in Nash- 
ville, December, 1864. Only two weeks later his oldest brother, 
Calvin Howard Brown, was lost at sea on the ill-fated steamer Mel- 
ville on his way south. This brother was graduated from Dart- 
mouth College in the class of 1859, and was practising law in Bos- 
ton. Soon after these sad events, Mr. Brown returned to New 
England. 

In the spring of 1865 he became connected with the educational 
department of Taggard and Thompson, publishers and booksellers, 
on Cornhill, Boston, and on the retirement of Mr. Taggard, in 1869, 
he became a member of the firm which in 1872 assumed the present 
name of Thompson, Brown and Company. To the interests of this 
business Mr. Brown most assiduously gave the remaining years of 
his life. For forty-three years he devoted himself enthusiastically 
to the making and selling of improved text-books. He was proud 
of every book which bore the imprint of his firm, and was not con- 
tent unless it represented a distinct advance in the methods of teach- 
ing. While its list of books has never been large, it is a list of 
which any house might well be proud, as it includes authors who 
are among the most successful teachers in the country. Among the 
most prominent publications are the Bradbury-Eaton Mathematical 
Series, some of which books have been translated into Chinese, 
Bulgarian and other languages, Meservey's Bookkeeping Series, 
the Duntonian Copy Books, and Cushing's Manual of Parliamentary 
Practice which for more than twenty-five years was the recognized 
standard for legislative bodies and deliberative organizations. It 
is difficult to estimate the great influence of such books on the count- 
less number of pupils who have used them and on the educational 
methods of the country. 



1908.] David Henry Brown. 317 

Since March, 1871 Mr. Brown has resided in West Medford, 
Massachusetts. Here, in the interest which he manifested in the so- 
cial, intellectual and spiritual welfare of the community, one sees the 
natural unfolding of his life. Taking up his residence here at a time 
when there was no church in the community, he took a foremost 
part, in 1872, in the organization of a Congregational Church, with 
which denomination he was affiliated. He was the first clerk of the 
church, first treasurer of the society, and the first superintendent of 
the Sunday School elected under the first installed minister, the Rev. 
Marshall M. Cutter. He retained an active interest in the church 
until his death. To him church attendance was not only a duty but 
a privilege ; he recognized the patriotic, civil, moral, and intellectual 
aspects of the subject, and always emphasized the importance of 
church attendance. He was loyal to his minister and desired him 
to maintain with dignity the traditions of the Congregational Church, 
which to him was the established church of New England. 

On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the organiza- 
tion of the West Medford Congregational Society, in 1897, Mr. 
Brown gave the historical address, and when the first edifice was 
burned he was chairman of the committee that selected the architect 
and plans for the new building. While the building was under con- 
struction he had a watchful interest in every detail, and in the exer- 
cises of laying the corner stone he was assigned a prominent part. 
He was genuinely broad in his religious views, and maintained the 
right of individual freedom in matters of faith and conscience. He 
exemplified a spirit of tolerance and worked with all who were ani- 
mated by the same spirit, no matter what their religious belief might 
be. To him the church was an institution which stood for the "up- 
lift of humanity in the community." 

Good citizenship to him included the interests of the village in 
which he lived, and so he labored for the organization of the Village 
Improvement Society of West Medford, of which he became the 
first president. This society accomplished much lasting good for 
the western part of the city, in promoting the planting of trees, the 
building of sidewalks, the care of the streets, and the general im- 
provement of the village. He constantly labored to put the com- 
munity a little further forward. He was one of the organizers of 
the West Medford Reading Club, one of the oldest literary societies 
in the country, and was the historian at the thirtieth anniversary of 
its organization last December, being at his death the secretary of 
the club. Who can estimate the value of such an institution to a 
community for more than a quarter of a century, in the persistent 
consideration of great subjects by the best authors of this and other 
lands, in literature, science, and art ! He was interested in the 
public schools which his children attended, and ever ready with kind- 
ly criticisms and co-operation to help advance their best interests. 



318 David Henry Brown, [Oct. 

He took a leading part in the organization of the Medford His- 
torical Society, in 1896, serving as president for four terms, besides 
ten years as chairman of the committee on papers and addresses, 
and being at the time of his death the editor of the Medford Histor- 
ical Register. It was through his initiative, while president of the 
Historical Society, that the city observed in 1905 the two hundred and 
seventy-fifth anniversary of the settlement of Medford, and the suc- 
cessful completion of the project was largely due to his persistent 
efforts as chairman of the executive committee. He not only en- 
listed the city government in the celebration, but individuals as well 
who contributed a large sum of money to increase the city's appro- 
priation for the purpose. The words of Judge Wait, president of 
the day, justly tell how valuable were Mr. Brown's services at this 
time : ? There is one man but for whom this two hundred and 
seventy-fifth anniversary would have passed without fitting recogni- 
tion, the man whose courage in the face of difficulties, whose enthu- 
siasm in the midst of indifference, whose persistence in spite of dis- 
couragement, and whose faith in spite of disappointments, have 
made this celebration possible and inevitable. Those who, in the 
future, look back on our records to the festivities and exercises of 
to-day should find inscribed in letters of gold the name of David 
H. Brown." One who knew him well says: 'He had a strong 
feeling for the historical interests of the New England town, that 
the materials of its local history should be searched out and preserved, 
the life of important persons written and treasured. Although he 
was not himself a native of Medford, he entered upon the work of 
preserving her history with more zeal than those who were. He was 
not discouraged by lack of interest on the part of others but gave 
himself freely to preserve and to cherish the traditions of its colonial 
days and whatever of value lay between the earliest and the latest 
times." 

At the time of his death Mr. Brown ranked as one of the city's 
best known and most highly esteemed citizens. Although he was 
never a candidate for public office, his voice was often heard and 
his influence felt in many ways for the betterment of his adopted 
town. As an individual and as a member of organizations he was 
always ready to help others and to promote the public welfare. 

In politics Mr. Brown was a Republican, but whenever in state 
or national politics his party failed to stand by her best traditions, 
he did not hesitate to withdraw his support and cast his vote for the 
man whom he conceived to be best qualified for the office, and to 
support those measures which he believed to be best calculated to 
serve the interests of the plain people. Frequently he was a dele- 
gate to political conventions, where he always tried by his voice and 
vote to nominate suitable men for office. 



1908.] David Henry Brown* 319 

He retained a deep interest in his native town of Raymond, New- 
Hampshire. In 1901 the citizens invited him to deliver the address 
during her Old Home Week celebration. Mr. Brown gave on that 
occasion a paper which pictured the life of the community as he re- 
membered it a half century before, and in its conception is a model 
for addresses on like occasions. 

In 1871, Mr. Brown was admitted a resident member of the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society, and in 1880 was made a 
life member. He served for three years on the committee to assist 
the Historiographer ; he was then elected on the Committee on the 
Library ; and at the time of his death, and for eight years previous, 
was on the Committee on Papers and Essays. He was greatly in- 
terested in genealogical matters, and during his long life found time 
for the exercise of his taste. He had more than a local reputation 
as a genealogist, being considered an authority on genealogical re- 
search. His genealogy of Dea. Simon Stone of Watertown, Mass., 
and some of his descendants, was published as a model of genealogi- 
cal work. Not only was he a frequent contributor to genealogical 
papers and magazines, but he was unusually successful in inspiring 
others to prepare papers and addresses which should give to the 
world material that would otherwise never have been published. As 
a member of the Society, he labored earnestly for the admission of 
women on the same terms as men. He looked upon this change in 
the by-laws as an act of simple justice, and was much pleased when 
it finally prevailed. 

He was a member of the Society of Colonial Wars, the Society of 
the Sons of the American Revolution, the Congregational Club, and 
Columbian Lodge A. F. and A. M., in which he was raised March 
20, 1868. 

Mr. Brown was married, October 20, 1869, to Abby Dudley 
Tucker, daughter of General Henry and Nancy (Dudley) Tucker 
of Raymond, New Hampshire, and a lineal descendant of Gov. 
Thomas Dudley of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He is survived 
by his widow; three sons, Henry Tucker Brown (Harvard 1895) 
who married Gertrude Clark, Howard Dudley Brown (Harvard 
1896) who married Phebe Frances Steere, and Edward Bangs Brown 
(Harvard 1899) who married Helen Goodale ; and a brother, 
Joseph Lincoln Brown of Raymond, New Hampshire. 

He was ambitious for neither wealth nor position ; he delighted in 
the simple habits and customs of his ancestors. With him it was 
'* plain living and high thinking." Endowed with a large brain and 
heart, honorable and high-minded in all his personal and business 
relations, ready to help advance any good cause, persistent of pur- 
pose, and with a broad and optimistic outlook on life, Mr. Brown 
was distinctly a power for good in the community in which he so 
long lived and labored.

1908.] Descendants of John and Thomas Jordan* 333 



JOHN AND THOMAS JORDAN OF GUILFORD, CONN., 

AND THEIR DESCENDANTS. 

Communicated by Bernard C. Steiner from notes compiled by Hon. Ralph D. 
Smyth and Matt B. Jones, Esq., of Boston. 

1. John 1 and Thomas 1 Jordan, probably brothers, were among the 
first planters of Guilford. John Jordan signed the plantation Covenant 
of June 1, 1639. Thomas may have been too young at that time. They 
were both persons of distinction among the early Colonists. John Jordan's 
name appears as one of the trustees in the Deed of Uncas to the settlers 
of Guilford, Dec. 17, 1641, and again with Mr. Disborow's and his brother 
Thomas Jordan's in the deed of Weekwash to Mr. Whitfield, Sept. 20, 
1641. He died, probably, early in Jan., 1649-50, as his inventory is 
dated Feb. 1, 1649-50. In 1654 Thomas Clarke of Milford had married 
Ann, widow of John Jordan. 

Thomas 1 Jordan, one of the most prominent of the settlers of Guilford, 
was young, perhaps not quite of age, when the colony was planted. He 
was one of the associate Judges of the Particular Court chosen Oct. 7, 
1646, and Treasurer from an early period. He was Representative in the 
Plantation Court, 1651-1654, at all the sessions, and was appointed by the 
Plantation Court to go to Boston with an answer to the General Court of 
Massachusetts, 1653. At a court at Guilford, Sept. 1, 1654, he took down 
the evidence in " short hand." About 1655 he returned to England, as 
he no longer appears on the Town and Colony Records. In a letter 
written by him to Mr. Leete, from England, he gives his house to Andrew 
Leete, who had married his daughter, Elizabeth Jordan, June 1, 1669. 
In 1706, William Leete and Caleb Leete were administrators of their 
grandfather " Mr. Thomas Jordan dec'd late of old England," part of whose 
land had been laid out first to Mr. William Leete and Mr. Thomas Jordan 
in common and never divided. His grandchildren were, besides William 
and Caleb, Samuel, Dorothy, Abigail, and Mercy Leete. 

On Sept. 12, 1666, William Leete wrote to Gov. John Winthrop asking 
him (4 Mass. Hist. Soc. Coll., vii., p. 558) to try to gain Mr. Jordan's 
consent to the intermarriage of Jordan's daughter Elizabeth to Leete's 
son Andrew. On Mch. 25, 1674, a letter was shown the townsmen of 
Guilford, from Thomas Jordan to Gov. Leete, authorizing the recording 
of Jordan's land to Andrew Leete, with the condition that " should he bury 
her and take another wife," after his death the land " shall go to the chil- 
dren of my daughter, or for want of heirs of her body to my lawful heirs." 

1. John 1 Jordan married Ann, daughter of John Bishop, and had the 

following children : 

i. Hannah, 2 m. June 28, 1666, Esbon Wakeman. 

ii. Elizabeth, d. 1720 ; m. Nov. 17, 1664, Daniel Hubbard, who d. 1720. 
iii. Mary, m. Abraham Post (wrongly called Abner in Register, vol. 
59, p. 132). 
2. iv. John, b. Mar., 1646-7. 

2. John 2 Jordan (John 1 ) was a cooper, and married Deborah 



who died in 1677. He removed to Middletown, and sold his home- 
lot in Guilford to William Leete, Jr., on June 24, 1679. Before 



334 Descendants of James Brotcfn* [Oct, 

1689 lie was in Saybrook. He died, presumably, about 1713, as 
on June 2G of that year, Abraham Chalker, executor of the last 
will and testament of " Mr. John Jordan, late of Saybrook," sets 
off to the deceased's daughter Mary her part of the lands of her 
father at Ironmine plain. (Saybrook Records, vol. 2, p. 372.) 
From Saybrook Records, vol. 2, pp. 372 and 386, and vol. 3, p. 386, 
it appears that John Jordan had a son James, and a daughter Mary 
who married John Ingham, Mar. 2, 1716. (Saybrook Records, 
vol. 2, p. 401.) He also had a daughter Hannah, as appears from 
Saybrook Records, vol. 3, p. 310, where James Jordan conveys 
land, Apr. 4, 1716, to " my loving sister Hannah Bate, of Saybrook 
aforesaid, widow and Relique of Samuel Bate, late of Saybrook." 
Hannah married first, Samuel Bates of Haddam, who died before 
1716; and married second, in 1717, John Stannard. It is also 
reasonably certain that John 2 Jordan had a daughter Catherine, 
who married William Bushnell, Apr. 10, 1701. This view is 
strengthened by the fact that Mary Jordan, on the same day upon 
which Abraham Chalker set off to her a portion of the land of her 
father, as above described, deeds to William Bushnell (husband of 
Catherine) two parcels of laud, " being the whole of that land given 
to me by my Honored father, Mr. John Jordan, late of Saybrook, 
deceased," and " one-third part of that meadow commonly called 
Pond Meadow that was my Honored Father's Mr. John Jordan's 
aforesaid." 



Thomas 1 Jordan married Dorothy , and had the following 

children : 

i. Elizabeth, 2 b. 1650; d. Mar. 4, 1704; m. June 1, 1669, Andrew 

Leete, who d. Oct. 31, 1702. 
ii. Mary, b. May 27, 1652. 



JAMES BROWN OF MIDDLETOWN, CONN., AND HIS 

DESCENDANTS. 

Compiled by Hon. Ralph D. Smyth, and communicated by Dr. Bernard C. Steiner. 

1. James 1 Brown, — says Dr. Field in his Centennial Address delivered 
at Midddletown, Nov., 1850, page 61, — was one of the merchants of Mid- 
dletown in 1730. " There were probably not more than two merchants 
here [Middletown], in 1730. One of these was James Brown, an excellent 
Scotchman, from Edinburgh, who used to cross the country to Boston on 
horse-back, once or more in a year, to make his contracts." 

James 1 Brown bought of Lieut. Abraham Bradley, by deed dated Sept. 
26, 1716 (Deeds, vol. 2, page 146), property at Guilford, formerly the 
homestead of Samuel Hughes, deceased. He died Dec. 10, 1770, in his 
96th year. He married first, Esther Broughton, who died Oct. 29, 1754 ; 

and married second, Mary . His children were all by the first 

wife. He was listed at Guilford, 1716 : one person £18-0-0, one horse 
£3-0-0.
